HC Deb 12 July 1944 vol 401 c1740W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Air upon whom rests the responsibility of deciding what future use, whether temporary or otherwise, should be made at the conclusion of hostilities, with Germany of the land and buildings at present occupied by units of the U.S.A.A.F. in this country.

Sir A. Sinclair

Land and buildings in occupation by the U.S.A.A.F. are either the property of or are held on requisition by the Air Ministry. It will accordingly fall to the Secretary of State for Air in association, as necessary, with other Ministers concerned, to decide what further use shall be made of any land and buildings no longer required by the American Air Forces.
