§ 22. Mr. HANNON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the terms of the Electricity (Supply) Bill now before the House, any investigation is being carried on by His Majesty's Government with regard to fuel economy; and whether, in view of the importance of this question to the trade and industry of the country, information on the subject will be made available at the earliest possible moment?
§ Major Sir HARRY BARNSTON (for Lord EUSTACE PERCY)
I have been asked to reply to this question. Research on the economical utilisation of fuel is being carried out under the Fuel Research Board of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. An account of the work in progress is given in the Report of the Royal Commission on the Coal Industry (Chapter IV), and fuller information will be found in the annual reports of the Fuel Research Board and of the Department of Scientific and industrial Research.
