HC Deb 31 May 1938 vol 336 c1845W
Mr. Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Air what progress has taken place with the proposed airport at Fairlop; and what transport facilities have been arranged in connection therewith?

Captain Balfour:

I understand that the acquisition of practically the entire area required for the proposed airport at Fair-lop was completed on 5th April last. The City Corporation have been notified that the site is in all aeronautical respects satisfactory for development as an airport and I understand that a special Airport Committee has been appointed by the Corporation to prepare and submit a scheme for laying out and establishing the airport.

As regards the last part of the question I am informed that when the London Passenger Transport Board have completed extensions to their line an electrified service to the City will be available from Fairlop station.
