HC Deb 15 February 1966 vol 724 c211W
Mr. Charles Morrison

asked the Minister of Power what steps he has taken to apply in Great Britain the United States Office of Coal Research's new technique for making gas from lignite coal.

Mr. Frederick Lee

Steps to apply new techniques are matters for the industries concerned. The particular technique for making gas from coal to which the hon. Member refers is the subject of a research project being carried out by the British Coal Utilisation Research Association.
