§ 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.
