HC Deb 25 February 1930 vol 235 cc2079-80W

asked the Lord Privy Seal if any further progress has been made with regard to the inquiry into the new process of treating coal known as the Turner method; and if any estimate of the number of persons likely to secure employment as a result has yet been arrived at?


A Report of the official test of the Turner low-temperature carbonisation process carried out last year by the Fuel Research Department has recently been published. Copies of this Report will be found in the Vote Office. It is not possible to make any estimate such as that indicated in the latter part of the question.
