§ 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.
