§ 35. Mr. HARDIE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what area of land has been purchased for the Bulverhythe Aerodrome; the price per acre; and the name of the party or parties the land was bought from?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Sir Philip Sassoon)
The land referred to does not belong to the Air Ministry. It was purchased by the Hastings Corporation for a municipal aerodrome, and I am not, therefore, in a position to supply details of the transaction.
§ Mr. HARDIE
In view of the Bill now before the House which seeks to control air navigation; does the right hon. Gentleman wish the House to understand that while we are taking all this trouble, the Government have no control and cannot get the information desired
