§ 43. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Health whether he is prepared to co-operate with the Mines 2411 Department in the scientific treatment of coal, so as to eliminate the smoke now existent in every city and town in the country, and to conserve the valuable dye products which are wasted to-day?
§ Sir H. BARNSTON
The treatment of coal is not within my right hon. Friend's province, but he is watching with much interest the work which is being done to obtain a satisfactory smokeless fuel at a commercial price.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
May I ask if the hon. Gentleman has had his attention drawn to a very interesting speech by the Secretary for Mines on this subject?
