HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 c60W
Colonel Clarke

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what progress has recently been achieved in research on blending with a view to conserving coking coals.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Work on the blending of coking coals forms an adequate proportion of the total research now in hand in the fuel and power field. It is not a subject in which spectacular advances can be expected, but I am satisfied that steady progress is being made.
