HC Deb 03 December 1919 vol 122 c419W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the military authorities are still in possession of Kenley Common, which was taken over during the, War for military purposes; if so, when it is proposed to vacate the common and to restore to the public their right to the full use of the same; and what is the reason for the delay in so doing?


The answer to the first part of this question is in the affirmative; and to the second and third parts, that owing to the importance of this aerodrome both from a service and civil point of view it is desired to retain it as a permanent station. Negotiations are in progress with this end in view.
