§ 9. Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power when he proposes to 9 publish the report of the working party sent to America some time ago to inquire into, and report upon, coal utilisation methods there.
§ Mr. Shinwell
I presume that my hon. Friend refers to a recent visit to the U.S.A. by three officials of my Ministry and of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research to study domestic heating methods. This report, which was designed primarily for official purposes, is somewhat long, and is not in a form suitable for publication. But I am considering, in consultation with the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research whether it would be practicable to prepare a summary for publication.
