§ 31. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies 269 whether he is satisfied that every possible economy is now being effected in the Navy, the Army, and the Air Force in regard to the use of petrol; and, if not, what further steps he proposes to take for that purpose?
§ Mr. HEWINS
Suggestions have been made to the Departments mentioned as to various directions in which economies may be effected, and good results have been obtained. Proposals for more effective control, by which it is hoped to secure further economies, are under consideration. The hon. Member may rest assured that everything possible will be done consistent with the maintenance of Naval, Military, and Aerial efficiency.
