HC Deb 31 October 1945 vol 415 c567W
Mr. Mikardo

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air on what date the Government purchased the land for Heath Row aerodrome; who were the vendors; what was the price paid per acre; on what date the land previously changed ownership; and at what price per acre.

Mr. Strachey

The land upon which the present Heath Row aerodrome is constructed is divided between 35 ownerships. Negotiations for purchase are in progress and have, in a small number of cases, been completed. It would not, therefore, be in the public interest, pending completion of the negotiations, to state what prices are being paid for the land. I regret also that I cannot yet say when the land previously changed ownership or the prices paid per acre.
