HC Deb 02 August 1912 vol 41 c2504W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can state the terms of reference to the recently-appointed Committee on Oil Fuel for the Navy; and whether they will be sufficiently wide to cover the whole question of internal combustion engines for propelling purposes?


The terms of reference are as follows: "To report on the means of supply and storage of liquid fuel in peace and war and its applications to warship engines, whether indirectly or by internal combustion." The answer to the last part of the question is in the affirmative.
