§ Sir P. SASSOON
The Royal Air Force base at Seletar is being extended. The total expenditure incurred upon the base to date, including that in respect of the work so far done on the extension, is approximately £825,000. The present normal strength is four squadrons, and in addition a small volunteer Air Force has lately been established by the Straits Settlements Government.
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
Is there any truth in the newspaper statement that the Government are now considering arrangements for an alternative air base at Cape Town?
