HC Deb 16 December 1912 vol 45 c1075
7. Mr. FELL

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if his attention has "been drawn to the expenditure of the French Government in encouraging experiments for the production of alcohol and other cheap spirits as a substitute for petrol; if the Development Board has funds available for a similar object; and, if so, why a sum cannot be set aside for the purpose?


The Board have no information with regard to the experiments to which the hon. Member refers in the first part of the question. The remaining parts of the question should be addressed to the Treasury.
