asked the Minister of Health What consultations his Department have had with a view to testing Russian ships visiting the United Kingdom for radioactive fall-out since the4W
Gas Council and the National Coal Board on the question of the economics of gasifying coal on a large scale by the Lurgi process.
§ Mr. Wood
The Gas Council and the National Coal Board have set up a joint study group to look into this matter. I attach importance to the early completion of the group's report, but I think it will be some months before it is available. The group is not only engaged in discussions, but has undertaken a detailed technical and economic study of the Lurgi process.
