HC Deb 22 June 1931 vol 254 c61W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the total acreage of land at present licensed for civil aerodromes and emergency landing grounds; and how many acres of this are owned by his Department or local authorities?


I regret that I am unable to supply the information for which the hon. Member asks. A complete answer would involve an elaborate scrutiny of official records, which my Noble Friend feels would not be justified. It may be stated, however, that Government civil aerodromes and landing grounds cover approximately 800 acres.
