HC Deb 29 May 1919 vol 116 cc1403-4
41. Mr. BRIANT

asked the Under-Secretary to the Air Ministry whether about 300 men have been discharged during the last month from the works now in progress at Wendover; if the cause for this is the delay in the passing of the plans for the continuation of the scheme; and if this is so, will he take steps to see that there shall be no further delay involving, as it has, the discharge of many demobilised soldiers?

Major-General SEELY

The recent discharges of men employed on construction work at Halton Park have been due to the approaching completion of buildings.
