HC Deb 04 December 1946 vol 431 c99W
113. Major Wise

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that an offer to purchase 150 used surplus cycles at Great Massingham R.A.F. station, Norfolk, was refused; that, subsequently, these cycles were laid out on the aerodrome runway and completely smashed by being deliberately run over by a steam roller; and why they were not handed over to the appropriate department for disposal.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Some used bicycle parts at this station were classified as beyond repair, broken down for salvage and disposed of to a Ministry of Supply metal recovery depot. The inquiry about their purchase was received after they had been scrapped.
