Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'The other day I read an article by Lady Roberts, quite a good one- but it does not help to demand that everybody should his share in the war. You have got to tell people exactly what to do, anything also is more or less rubbish. Therefore I was very pleased when Commander King-Hall gave a Fuel Target; perhaps it is no ideal solution, maybe, but it certainly is hundred times better than telling people to save fuel.'
