HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 cc2184-5
14. General Sir George Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the position as regards the retention or otherwise of Blackbushe and Lasham aerodromes; whether Blackbushe aerodrome is now to be released; and if there is any necessity to retain Lasham which is situated on good agricultural land and from which very little flying is now done.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

The aerodrome at Lasham is required by the R.A.F., and must, therefore, be retained. The aerodrome at Blackbushe is equipped with F.I.D.O., and will be used by civil aircraft for at least some years to come.
