HC Deb 07 July 1932 vol 268 c623

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the importance to Great Britain of the early development of recent inventions providing for new uses of coal and the by-products therefrom, he will take steps to ensure that the maximum assistance is given by every Government Department to such development and that, if necessary, a co-ordinating committee is appointed to assist in this matter?


This matter was dealt with at considerable length during the Debate which took place on Tuesday last on the Mines Department Vote. I am satisfied that all the Departments concerned realise the importance of giving all possible assistance in regard to developments of the kind referred to and that adequate arrangements already exist for securing co-ordination between the Departments.
