Mr HULME - I think it would be incorrect to suggest that this process has been perfected. This is research being done by the C.S.I. R.O., and the Post Office, because of its interest in cheap energy and the fact that this fuel cell can produce electric energy from readily available fuels, is co-operating to the maximum with the C.S.I. R.O. It is proposed that next year there will be laboratory tests in relation to this development and then, if these are satisfactory, the cell will be used in field tests in some of our telephone equipment in country areas. If there is any additional information that can be made available I think that primarily it should come from the Minister in Charge of the C.S.I.R.O., but I will be happy to discuss the matter with him.
