HC Deb 01 December 1925 vol 188 cc2030-1

asked the Secretary for Mines whether there are any facilities for experimenting in the making of briquettes or other forms of compressed duff at any of the Government experimental stations; and, if so, will he state what processes they have examined?

Colonel LANE-FOX

There are some facilities at His Majesty's Fuel Research Station for experimenting in the making of briquettes, but no systematic examination of briquetting processes has been carried out. The work done has been ancillary to other investigations, and has been described in the Report of the Fuel Research Board for the period ended the 31st December, 1924.
