asked the Secretary of State for Energy whether he will publish in the Official Report a list of currently known reserves of uranium, identifying those which are being exploited, and those where exploitation plans are currently being developed.

A recent report by the International Energy Agency and the Nuclear Energy Agency of the OECD showed that major resources of uranium economically recoverable at prices up to$15/lb.—January 1973 figures—exist mainly in the United States of America, Canada, South Africa, Australia, France, Niger and Argentina. Reserves are being exploited in all these countries. I am placing a copy of this report, "Uranium resources, production and demand"—August 1973—in the Library.
