HC Deb 27 February 1946 vol 419 c1904
25. Mr. Derek Walker-Smith

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will make a statement of his Department's intention in regard to the continuance in use or otherwise of the Sawbridgeworth aerodrome

Mr. Strachey

We do not intend to use Sawbridgeworth for flying again. It will be needed for storage for some time 10 come, but arrangenments are being made to cultivate all the available land there.

Mr. Walker-Smith

Will not the Undersecretary also bear in mind the inconvenience at present caused by the closing of the Sawbridgeworth - Much Hadam road, and will he give an undertaking that the storage arrangements will allow for the reopening of that road?

Mr. Strachey

Perhaps the hon. Member would communicate with me on that matter.
