HC Deb 16 October 1941 vol 374 c1517W
Sir R. Tasker

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether compensation has been, or will be, paid to owners of civilian airports when, for reasons of defence, the Royal Air Force took possession of the grounds and hangars?

Sir A. Sinclair

The amount of compensation due under the Compensation (Defence) Act, 1939, has been agreed in a number of cases and final settlement has been made. Where agreement on the final figure has not been reached payments on account are being made.
