Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if his Department will give consideration to the installation of a low-temperature carbonisation plant in the coalfields of South-West Lancashire as part of the post-war development plan; and with what result.
Major Lloyd George:
If my hon. Friend would supply me with particulars of any scheme he has in mind, I should be very happy to consider them.
Do I understand that the Minister's Department has not submitted to my right hon. Friend the proposal for the establishment of this low temperature carbonisation plant?
Major Lloyd GeorÄ£e:
I am not aware of it, but, if my hon. Friend will let me have particulars, I will look into it.
May I ask whether my right hon. Friend's Department has considered this matter of the development of the oil and coal industries in a general way. Is there a committee?
A very considerable amount of research is being done at the moment.
Is it not the job of the right hon. and gallant Gentleman's Department to consider these schemes in fulfilment of the Government's promise of full employment?
It certainly is, and I have said that I would consider them if they were brought to my notice.
