§ 23. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Arthur Heneage
asked the Secretary of State for Air if before pulling up concrete runways, he will make sure that the runways cannot 1634 be used for other purposes and that the cost is not prohibitive or unnecessary; and will he also leave hangars standing where they are of use for parking places for vehicles or agricultural implements.
§ The Joint Under-Secretary of State for Air (Mr. Quintin Hogg)
My hon. and gallant Friend's suggestions will be borne in mind.
§ Mr. Stokes
Will the hon. Gentleman make sure that the First Lord of the Admiralty knows what he is doing in this matter, so as to prevent an unwarrantable waste of public money in making Admiralty aerodromes where suitable ones exist next door?
