§ 5. Mr. Erroll
asked the Minister of Supply why experiments are being conducted for the adaptation of jet aircraft engines for the use of petrol instead of vaporising oil.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
These experiments are being made so that our jet aircraft shall not be dependent upon one particular type of fuel.
§ Mr. Erroll
Is that indicative of the growing shortage of kerosene, which farmers are compelled to use because of the tax on petrol?
§ Mr. Strauss
Not necessarily. It is obviously desirable to see whether any other fuels can be effectively used.
