24. Major HARVEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is satisfied that the overhead electric cables now being erected in the vicinity of Haldon (Teignmouth) aerodrome will neither constitute a source of danger to aircraft using the aerodrome nor in any other way impair its usefulness?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)
It is not considered that the overhead electric cables constitute a source of danger to aircraft using this aerodrome, or any material diminution in its usefulness, if pilots exercise reasonable care. The nearest point of the cable line is about 1,100 yards distant from the boundary of the aerodrome and at that point the line is actually 130 feet below the aerodrome level.
