§ 10. Mr. Shinwell
asked the Secretary for Mines whether it is proposed to make use of the plant at Seaham formerly owned by "Modern Fuels,'' which is capable of producing oil and other by-products?
§ Mr. Shinwell
Does the hon. Gentleman not realise that this plant employs 1,500 men and that it can produce a very large quantity of oil and other residuals? Is it not desirable to come to an early decision as to whether the Government are to produce oil from coal?
