HC Deb 13 April 1938 vol 334 cc1126-7
60. Mr. Everard

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is considering making a survey of municipal and private aerodromes, so that an organised system of use of these aerodromes, with payment by the Government, may be put into operation?

Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead

A survey is being undertaken with a view to ascertaining which additional municipal aerodromes can be utilised for Royal Air Force purposes. Due payment is already made in respect of those which are at present being used for such purposes, and will be made in respect of any additional aerodromes which may be so used.

Mr. Everard

Am I to understand that all the municipal and private aerodromes will now be considered by the Air Ministry to see whether proper advantage can be taken of them by the Royal Air Force?

Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead

Yes, a comprehensive review is being undertaken.
