15. Surgeon Lieut-Commander Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Air what his proposals are for the future of the flying boat base at Calshot.
§ Mr. A. Henderson
Calshot will continue to be used as a flying boat station of the Royal Air Force.
Surgeon Lieut-Commander Bennett
While that is certainly in many ways a very satisfactory answer, may I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman if he is aware of the very large and increasing heavy sea traffic around the port of Calshot, which will be expanded by the building of a very large oil depot in the neighbourhood, and if he considers that the place will be safe enough to continue there the training of flying boat pilots?
