Fuel Research


    ONE of the most important of the subjects dealt, with in the recent annual Report of the Committee of the Privy Council for Scientific and Industrial Research is that of fuel. Fuel is in Great Britain practically the sole source of the power which is essential to all our large industries. The only fuel of national importance produced at the present time is coal, and on the economic use of our diminishing supplies of it the prosperity of the country largely depends. This is now becoming a platitude, but the complexity of the problem involved is by no means realised by many popular writers on the subject.
