HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 c2134W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he bas received any proposals for the establishment of aerodromes in the County of Durham; and if he has given any decisions on such proposals?


The answer is in the affirmative. Certain sites have been inspected by the Air Ministry at the request of the Central and North Durham Joint Town Planning Committee and an inspection has just been made of a possible site for a sea aerodrome near South Shields. I understand certain other municipalities (with whom, of course, the initiative rests in this matter) have under consideration the question of providing aerodromes in their vicinity, but no further concrete proposals have been communicated to the Air Ministry.
