HC Deb 26 February 1920 vol 125 c1937W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to a recently-announced invention of a petrol substitute made by chemical mixture at the cost of under 1s. a gallon; whether this invention has been investigated by the Government; and whether it has proved to be successful?


I saw reports of such an invention in the Press some time ago. No such material has been submitted to the Government or investigated by them.
