HC Deb 29 January 1947 vol 432 cc200-1W
78. Mr. Rankin

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation what progress has been made in acquiring the land necessary for installing the Standard Beam Approach System at Renfrew.

Mr. Lindgren

Negotiations for the purchase of the necessary land, which includes sites for three beacons, are now in progress with the landowners and I hope that agreement will shortly be reached. In view of the urgency of this matter the consent of the landowners concerned has been obtained to the immediate installation, without prejudice to current negotiations, of a temporary main beacon.
