HC Deb 08 July 1931 vol 254 c2098W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the difficulties experienced in setting up a chain of privately-owned landing grounds throughout the country; and what aid has been sought from farmers with suitable landing grounds such as were used in the tour of Sir Alan Cobham when special flights were arranged for school children?


I do not know to what difficulties the hon. Member refers; the institution of privately-owned landing grounds is not a responsibility of the Air Ministry, although any efforts which may be made in this connection would, of course, be welcomed. The second part of the question therefore does not arise.
