HC Deb 13 June 1945 vol 411 cc1633-4
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 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?
