HC Deb 25 February 1914 vol 58 c1752
27. Viscount DUNCANNON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has arrived at a decision with regard to the request for compensation made by the proprietors of the Dover Aerodrome for the loss to them due to the Aerial Navigation Orders, 1913; and, if so, whether he will communicate it?

Colonel SEELY

When a decision has been reached on the different points arising out of this matter, I will inform the Noble Viscount.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it is now a year since the matter was brought to the notice of the Government, and, in view of the fact that those concerned are incurring a financial loss, will he endeavour to accelerate the decision?

Colonel SEELY

It is a very big question. I do not know that acceleration would be in the interests of all parties concerned. I will certainly not lose sight of it.
