§ 67. Mr. CONNOLLY
asked the President of the Board of Education whether he can report on the work done by the fuel research station with regard to the, discovery of a smokeless fuel suitable for domestic purposes?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of EDUCATION (Lord Eustace Percy)
Work on the production of smokeless fuel is progressing steadily at the Fuel Research Station so far as the coal shortage will allow. The whole question is discussed in the Annual Report of the Director of Fuel Research for 1925, which will be published during the autumn. Developments during 1926 have been promising, and will be dealt with in a special report.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
This is purely on a laboratory scale. Can the noble Lord say how much coal is used?
§ Lord E. PERCY
I suppose it is not a question of the amount of coal, but of the quality of the various coals experimented with.
