HC Deb 23 July 1952 vol 504 c25W
8. Mr. R. Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has now received proposals from the Governor of the Bahamas for the provision of an airport in Nassau suitable for use by Comet aircraft, so that British Overseas Airways Corporation may open a dollar earning service with these aircraft in the coming winter; and whether it has now been decided to reopen Windsor field for this purpose.

Mr. Lyttelton

Provision has been made in the estimates of the Colony to extend the runway at Oakes Field to meet B.O.A.C. requirements for the Comet. No decision has yet been reached about Windsor field being reopened for this purpose.
