asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the number of civil airports of each class opened during each of the past three years, together with the number now in the course of construction?

Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead

The number of civil aerodromes licensed for public use and opened in the years referred to was as follows:

Owned by local authorities. In private ownership.
1935 6 2
1936 4 2
1937 5 1
Twelve aerodromes are known to be in course of construction by local authorities.

Mr. Robinson

Now that the Cadman Report has been published will my hon. and gallant Friend promise a more vigorous policy in developing the civil airports in this country?
