The Chairman:

Order. I wonder if the hon. member will help me in this respect. I believe he was relevant and in order when he was discussing a matter which related to Atomic Energy Limited, because I would presume that there would be an item in the estimates dealing with atomic energy. However, I am a little at sea at the present time to know how the hon. member justifies a speech on interim supply which, as far as I can see at present, involves a transaction between two companies which are not crown companies. It appears to me that he is now wandering somewhat from relevancy in a debate of this kind.

The Chairman:

That is the point I was trying to make. I have not examined the entire estimates, but I presume there are items in the estimates with regard to the atomic energy program. I do not know whether there is anything in the estimates to which the hon. member could draw my attention which would enable him to discuss what would appear at the present moment to be a transaction between two private companies. However, as I have said, I have not been able to examine every item in the estimates.
