To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what studies are being undertaken by the transport and road research laboratory into ethanol and methanol fuels for large-scale private and commercial road vehicle use.
§ Mr. Atkins
The energy technology support unit published a report "An assessment of bioethanol as a transport fuel in the UK" in 1988 (ETSU Report R-44). Copies will be placed in the Library. The transport and road research laboratory's vehicles and environment division keeps in touch with the work going on worldwide on alternative fuels.
