§ Mr. BURGOYNE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether acetone can be stocked for any length of time without redistillation; and what percentage would be lost in the event of redistillation?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)
Present experience shows that good acetone can be stored for about ten years without redistillation. On redistillation the loss varies from 3 per cent. to 5 per cent., but is generally nearer the lower figure.
