HC Deb 31 October 1975 vol 898 cc619-20W
Dr. Edmund Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why he has made a condition in respect of the possible sale of premises at Royal Air Force Dishforth to the Home Office that the Royal Air Force has a continued right to use the airfield there at all times.

Mr. John

Because it is essential for the efficient and economic operation of flying training in the Royal Air Force that the airfield at RAF Dishforth should continue to be available as required for use by the Flying Training School at Leeming as a relief landing ground.
