HC Deb 23 October 1945 vol 414 c1949W
Mr. Timmons

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that there is still a large quantity of gas going to waste at Colville's Tollcross Works; and if he will give a report of the negotiations between Lanarkshire County Council and Colville's, Limited, as to the usage of this waste gas.

Mr. Shinwell

Most of the gas made at Tollcross Works is used in the adjoining steelworks. Relatively small quantities are bled to waste at weekends. The Lanarkshire County Council have been unable in the past to use this surplus gas owing to lack of purification plant, but I understand that negotiations between the Council and Colville's, Ltd., are now proceeding.

Forward to
