HC Deb 01 December 1948 vol 458 c186W
Mr. Warbey

asked the Secretary of State for Air for what reasons permission has been granted to the U.S. Air Force to make use of seven R.A.F. bases in Great Britain; to base 60 Super-Fortresses in this country; and to bring 5,700 officers and men of the U.S.A.F. to this country.

Mr. A. Henderson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave on 28th July. Additional facilities have been placed at the disposal of the U.S.A.F. since that date because of the requirements of the Berlin air lift.
