HC Deb 17 January 1974 vol 867 c154W
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.
