HC Deb 30 November 1964 vol 703 cc27-8
37. Mr. Derek Page

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is to be the future use of the Royal Air Force Station at Marham, Norfolk.

Mr. Millan

The Royal Air Force will need to retain Marham as an active flying station as far ahead as can be foreseen.

Mr. Page

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this will bring relief to civilians employed in the area, particularly in view of the rumours during the election campaign which suggested that the base would be closed?

Mr. Millan

Those rumours had no foundation in fact.
