11. Mr. McKie
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the former air-sea rescue base at Gibbhill, Kircudbright, will be derequisitioned in order that the premises may be utilised as an engineering factory.
§ Mr. de Freitas
We have already authorised derequisitioning of the site and are now negotiating with the owner about the disposal of the buildings.
Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the necessity of giving a decision on this matter as early as possible because a great contribution to production is being lost through the delay?
