§ Mr. Garry Allighan
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation how many crashes took place at Gravesend airport before 13th May, 1945; and what percentage of these were attributable to bad weather conditions in the district.
§ Mr. P. Noel-Baker
I have been asked to reply to this Question. During the years 1939 to 1942, inclusive, there were 46 air accidents at Gravesend aerodrome, only one of which was due to bad weather. I regret that there are no detailed records of accidents at Gravesend in 1943 and 1944. From 1st January, 1945, to the 13th May, 1945, there were no accidents at Gravesend.
