§ 48. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for Air if he can make any statement with regard to the arrangements for establishing an air port at Sheffield?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
I am pleased to say that the Sheffield Corporation have notified the Air Ministry that they contemplate taking steps to acquire a site and to obtain a renewal of the powers conferred upon them by the Sheffield Corporation Act, 1920, in regard to the establishment of a municipal aerodrome. An officer of the Air Ministry recently visited Sheffield, at the request of the Corporation, for the purpose of inspecting possible sites and discussing the question of an aerodrome with the municipal officers, and every assistance which my Department can render will be at the disposal of the Corporation for this purpose.
