HC Deb 13 November 1957 vol 577 c57W
93. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in deciding the future use of the Hendon airfield, he will have due regard to local interests; and whether he will make a statement in this connection.

Mr. Ward

Yes. We shall at the appropriate stage consult local authorities, including the Hendon Borough Council, about the interim uses of the airfield which would be consistent with its possible future flying use for aircraft such as helicopters, short take-off and landing and vertical take-off aircraft.
