HC Deb 18 November 1942 vol 385 cc368-9W
Mr. Granville

asked the Secretary of State for Air who is responsible for the delay in completing the building of the runways on the aerodrome in the area privately indicated to him?

Sir A. Sinclair

During the early stages of construction on the site referred to, progress was delayed by a shortage of labour. As soon as the full labour force became available, work proceeded satisfactorily and the runways ate now practically complete.
