That is including the uranium and heavy water. I did not say what the cost would be. I said that the fee of the consulting engineer was based on $20 million, and that is written into the contract.

Mr. Drew:

That was a statement issued by the atomic energy control board on January 2. In view of the fact that those statements are distributed to members of this house, I should think that the members of this house would have a right to rely on their accuracy.
