asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps he has taken to see that proper economies have been, and are being effected, in the consumption of light and fuel in all establishments and formations under his control; and whether he will consider the appointment of a qualified officer to ensure that all such considerations are effectuated as time and opportunity permit?

Commanding officers have been especially charged to see that proper economies are being effected in the consumption of light and fuel. Monthly reports are to be rendered showing the savings and these will be closely examined by the Admiralty. The appointment of a single officer as suggested in the last part of the Question is not considered necessary.
