§ Mr. A. ALLEN
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it will be possible at an early date to release any carbide for acetylene gas-making for private consumers?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. In1878W view of the improved position of supplies, arrangements are being made to release a limited quantity of carbide each month, as supplies permit. This will be available for the purpose of house lighting and will be obtainable next week.
