HC Deb 16 July 1946 vol 425 cc1041-2
68. Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power, what measures are proposed for the utilisation of peat this year; and whether, in the surveys of peat resources, other possible uses than burning as solid fuel will be borne in mind.

Mr. Shinwell

In reply to the first part of the Question, I would refer to my hon. Friend to the answer given on 4th June to the hon. Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Boyd-Carpenter), of which I am sending him a copy; the reply to the second part is in the affirmative.
