HC Deb 11 March 1935 vol 299 c28W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what steps, if any, are being taken by the Air Council to secure co-ordination between municipal authorities in the selection and acquisition of suitable sites for air ports, or whether it is the policy of the Council to encourage any local authority which desires to do so to possess its own air port?


It is the policy of the Air Ministry to encourage local authorities generally to provide themselves with suitable aerodromes. Whether their needs are best served by separate aerodromes or by aerodromes established jointly by two or more municipalities depends on the circumstances of each case, such as the relative situation of the towns and the aerodrome sites available.
