Sir W. Edgé
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether his attention has been called to the refusal of a small supply of water to cottages abutting on an aerodrome, the identity of which has been forwarded to him; and whether he will investigate the circumstances to see if this concession can be made without interfering with the work of the aerodrome.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
The Air Ministry is bound by its contract with the corporation of the borough concerned not to supply water to any other consumer, except a Department of State, without the consent of the corporation. If the rural district council can obtain this consent, no objection to the supply would be raised by the Air Ministry.
