§ 37. Mr. A. Edwards (for Mr. Mathers)
asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether he is now in a position to make a statement of the Government attitude towards the Falmouth Committee Report on oil from coal, especially that section of the report relating to the Scottish shale-oil industry?
§ The Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence (Sir Thomas Inskip)
I am not yet in a position to add anything to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Dudley (Mr. Joel) on 13th April. A statement will be made as soon as possible.
§ Mr. Edwards
What financial assistance are the Government prepared to give to any private company which puts down plant?
§ Sir T. Inskip
That is another question. A statement will be made as soon as possible, and I hope in a very short time.
