HC Deb 15 July 1964 vol 698 c231W
59. Mr. Paton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he is aware that St. Faith's Airfield at Norwich has been lying disused for many months, that the installations and runways are of potential value for local civil use, and that they are rapidly deteriorating; and, in order to limit waste of public money and resources, if he will announce an early decision on its future use.

Mr. H. Fraser

The Government have now decided that the Norwich City Council should be given the opportunity of buying the land it requires at this airfield.

Certain of the domestic buildings will be made; available to the University of East Anglia for use as residential accommodation for students.
