HC Deb 29 January 1947 vol 432 cc224-5W
118. Air-Commodore Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is aware that the MFDF radio station at Luka aerodrome, Malta, is closed from 0700 to 1300 hours daily; and what steps he is taking to ensure that civil aircraft are given every possible assistance in navigational aids from the island.

Mr. Creech Jones

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I am advised that the navigational equipments at present provided on the aerodrome are adequate to meet existing requirements. I am however in communication with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Air and my noble Friend the Minister of Civil Aviation, with a view to determining what further steps will be required in the island in the future to meet the situation resulting from the contraction of the R.A.F.
