Orders of the Day — Supply.: Number Ok Air Force. (11 Mar 1920)

Colonel Ralph Glyn: ...regard to lighter-than-air machines, the German Zeppelin was, I suppose, the finest lighter-than-air machine known. During the war the Germans put up very large establishments for the production of hydrogen. Some of these hydrogen plants are still in existence, still working, and it is possible for the Germans to use their lighter-than-air craft. They might, if they did not do any damage...

There was not a big manufacture of either of those before the War in this country, while in Germany there were both made on an immense scale by the dye corporations. Chlorine was used...

Oral Answers to Questions — Airships (Non-Inflammable Gas). (12 Apr 1922)

Mr George Bowyer: 14. asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether his attention has been drawn to the invention of a process for manufacturing a non-inflammable gas, of approximately the same lift as hydrogen, called currenium; and, in view of the fact that it is reported that this gas can be produced much more cheaply than helium, will the Admiralty take the necessary steps to obtain full...

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1922–23.: Admiralty Office. (18 Jul 1922)

Lieut-Colonel John Moore-Brabazon: ..., this House may very easily drift along lines which will involve us in enormous expense for no definite object at all. After all, it is a question for experts, and we knew during the War that a hydrogen filled airship, from a military point of view, was one of the things most easily knocked out that ever went into the air. I grant you that America, from the naval point of view, looks with...

Order of the Day.: Technical and Warlire Stores (Including Experimental and Research Services). (28 May 1924)

Orders of the Day — Coal (Scientific Research). (11 May 1927)

Sir George Clayton: Yes, it is a synthetic oil, because you have added the hydrogen to the coal. I have mentioned that these processes have been investigated by representatives of Imperial Chemical Industries, of which I am a director, and they are now in contact with the German group, the Interessen Gemeinschaft, familiarly called the I.G. I also want to assure the House that, should these processes which have...

There can be no doubt about the interest and importance of the process referred to by the...

Orders of the Day — Government and Coal Industry. ( 7 Dec 1927)

Mr Philip Lloyd-Greame: ...use of coal?" I disagree with him, in the first place, that here there is no room for private enterprise. That ignores the whole of the experience of Germany, and all that has been done in hydrogenation in Germany, which is the product of private enterprise, and not of government activity. But the Government are doing a great deal here. The right hon. Gentleman said, "What about...
