HC Deb 23 July 1940 vol 363 c609
66. Sir Stanley Reed

asked the Secretary for Mines whether the committee appointed to investigate the use of alternatives to petroleum for use in mechanically-propelled vehicles has reported; and, if so, what action has been taken?

Mr. Grenfell

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Coventry (Captain Strickland) on 18th June, to which I have nothing to add.

Captain Strickland

Has no progress whatever been made since June?

Mr. Grenfell

There will be a report published in the course of the next few weeks, and I think that that will give the information required?
