A liquid electrolyte fuel cell comprises means to define an electrolyte chamber (208), and two electrodes (10), one on either side of the electrolyte chamber (208), each electrode comprising: - a sheet (11) of metal through which are defined a multiplicity of through-holes (14), and - a gas-permeable layer (16) of fibrous and/or particulate electrically-conductive material which is bonded to and in electrical contact with the sheet of metal (11), and which comprises catalytic material (18). The electrode (10) may be arranged such that the gas-permeable layer (16) faces the electrolyte chamber (208).
