HC Deb 09 November 1943 vol 393 c1108W
Mr. Sexton

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power why his Department agreed to the withdrawal of labour from a successful operating oil-from-coal plant at Welbeck?

Major Lloyd George

The small oil-from-coal plant at Welbeck has not been in continuous operation. The negligible contribution of this plant to our oil supplies did not justify the retention of the labour necessary to keep it in operation.
