HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 cc43-4W
42. Mr. R. A. Butler

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the narrow roads in the vicinity of Easton Lodge airfield, now being used as a depot, are unsuitable for large heavy traffic; that accidents have occurred; and whether he will give an assurance that, in any plans made for the future of Easton Lodge, the anxieties of local inhabitants will be given consideration.

Mr. Bellenger

I am aware of anxiety locally about the traffic to Great Dunmow Airfield, to which, I understand, the Question refers. The traffic to the airfield reached its peak during the summer but has since been much reduced and should in future remain at a low level. The use of an alternative route is, however, under consideration.
