§ Sir C. Taylor
asked the Minister for Energy whether he will make a statement about alternative forms of fuel for motor vehicles which look like being successful in place of petrol or diesel oil.
§ Mr. David Howell
The Department of Energy with the Department of Trade and Industry are examining a number of possible alternative fuels for motor vehicles. This is being done in co-operation with the chemical, motor and oil industries. Problems surrounding the use of these alternative fuels include supply, transportation, storage, and safety.
