HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1327
43. . Mr. Medland

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether any decision has yet been made as to the future use of Harrowbeer airport; and, if not, for what reason.

Mr. Strachey

The Royal Air Force is not using Harrowbeer at present. A training centre for the building trade is to be set up there shortly. The final decision for Harrowbeer depends on postwar requirements for civil and Service airfields in the South-West.

Mr. Medland

Can the Minister give consideration to the disposal of this airport to the local authority of Plymouth for civil aviation purposes?

Mr. Strachey

That sounds more like a question which should be addressed to the Minister of Civil Aviation. I think that very possibly they will have important use for the airfield.
