HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c57W
Mr. J. Grimston

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation how many existing civil aerodromes have been taken over by his Department for public operation; and how many more are programmed for requisition.

Mr. Beswick

Twenty-four aerodromes which were in existence as civil aerodromes in 1939 have been taken over. The programme is still under review but it is unlikely that the present total will be exceeded.
