HC Deb 21 February 1918 vol 103 c942W

asked the Undersecretary of State to the Air Ministry whether it has been decided to abandon the aerial gunnery school in Ayrshire on which £400,000 has been expended; whether the hutments are being or will shortly be demolished; if so, how long the works had been in progress before this decision was taken; and what portion, if any, of the works erected are to be regarded as otherwise than a dead loss for military purposes?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The hutments axe being taken down and removed for use elsewhere. A good number have already been sent away. A contract was entered into in February, 1917. In regard to the last part of the question, I am unable to answer this at present.
