HC Deb 24 January 1975 vol 884 c506W
Mr. Madden

asked the Secretary of State for Energy what regulations govern the moisture content of solid fuel.

Mr. Eadie

There are no statutory regulations or orders governing the moisture content of solid fuels. There is a British Standard, No. 3142, Manufactured Solid Smokeless Fuels for Household Use, which is concerned with the quality of these fuels at the point of production and specifies limits of moisture content either directly or by reference to heat output.
