§ 15. Mr. Wilfrid Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in planning the sites of post-war Trans-Atlantic airways, the advantages of sites in the neighbourhood of the Solway have been considered; and whether any decision has yet been reached.
§ The Secretary of State for Air (Sir Archibald Sinclair)
Yes, Sir. Sites in the neighbourhood of Solway Firth have been surveyed and their possibilities for Trans-Atlantic flying will receive full consideration together with those of other localities. No decisions have yet been taken.
§ Mr. Roberts
Can the Minister say whether there are not some special advantages from the climatic conditions in this area?
