HC Deb 19 April 1926 vol 194 c846
64. Sir F. WISE

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will state the cost of the Hendon aerodrome and the acreage?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Major Sir Philip Sassoon)

The acreage of the aerodrome is approximately 300. For the reasons which were stated in my reply to my hon. Friend on the 10th February last, it is inadvisable at present to state the cost?


When may I put this question down again?


Negotiations for the sale of certain portions of the land and buildings not required by the Air Ministry are at present in progress, and until they are concluded it would not be advisable to state the sum.
