§ 12. Mr. D. Price
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what progress has been made by his Department in research into the methods of shipping liquid gas from overseas oilfields into the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Aubrey Jones
Research in this field is being pressed forward by oil companies and others in America. The Gas Council is keeping in close touch 1755 with these developments and is also working on the matter itself. There are, however, formidable technical problems associated with the shipment of liquid gas, and I should not like to forecast whether and, if so, how soon they will be satisfactorily solved.
