HC Deb 09 December 1968 vol 775 c56W
Mr. Awdry

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what proposals he has for selling the land formerly owned by the late Mr. Hanly of Crompton Bassett, which land was purchased by the Air Ministry in 1942 and is now no longer required for defence purposes.

Mr. Boyden

As there is no public requirement for the land, which contains valuable sand deposits, it will be offered for sale by public auction in the usual way.
