HC Deb 01 November 1932 vol 269 c1589
5. Mr. JOHN

asked the Secretary for Mines whether his Department has yet received a report by the experts of the Cunard Company respecting the colloidal fuel, which was tested in the Cunarder "Scythia" on a trip to America and back; whether the fuel is reported on as satisfactory; and what steps does the Government intend to take in the matter?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ernest Brown)

Yes, Sir, the Cunard Company have supplied my Department confidentially with particulars of their experiment. By agreement with them certain points are being investigated by the Government's experts but the report on these investigations is not yet complete.
