Mr. Whiteley (Comptroller of the Household):
I have been asked to reply. Any large increase in the number of vehicles propelled by producer-gas must necessarily depend to a large extent upon the quantities of suitable fuel available. As the House is aware, my hon. Friend recently appointed a Commitee, under the Chairmanship of Lord Henley, to report on this subject. The Committee has made considerable progress, but my hon. Friend cannot anticipate their report. He can assure the hon. Member that the whole question is engaging the close attention of the Government Departments concerned.
