HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 c224W
61. Mr. Hurd

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what efforts his Department made to find a use for the W.A.A.F. hutments at Hampstead Norris, Berkshire; and if he is aware that this property has been so neglected that it is now unfit for habitation.

Mr. W. Edwards

Hampstead Norris airfield is at present occupied by the Admiralty for storage purposes. The W.A.A.F. hutments though not immediately required for Admiralty purposes are included in the plan far the development of the use of the premises. They were used last summer for harvest camp accommodation, but on account of the damage sustained to the water services during the severe weather early this year, the war agricultural executive committee have not found it possible to make the same use of the site this year.
