asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is prepared to authorise a test of devices known as fuel economisers to be conducted under the supervision of a committee to be appointed by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers; and whether he will be pre- pared to act in accordance with the results of such a test?

No, Sir. A great deal of information on the performance of devices described as fuel economisers is already in the possession of my Ministry. On any further tests that may be required, I should be advised by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research and my Fuel Efficiency Committee as to what body is best qualified to conduct them.
