HC Deb 19 April 1955 vol 540 c3W
Mr. Snow

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is aware of local objections to the closing of certain roads in the vicinity of the Royal Air Force Station, Lichfield; and if he will suspend action pending a further inquiry at which the views of the Alrewas Parish Council and of the Lichfield Rural District Council can be heard.

Mr. Ward

Proposals under Section 15 of the Requistioned Land and War Works Act, 1945, for the permanent closure of certain highways which pass through R.A.F. Station, Lichfield are now being considered by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation. No local representations against the closure have been made to the Air Ministry. If and when proposals are published, three months must be allowed for the consideration of objections before a closure order can be made. The Alrewas Parish Council and the Lichfield Rural District Council will therefore have the opportunity to put forward their views.
