§ Mr. JANNER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is yet in a position to make any statement with regard to the possibility of providing in the near future in Palestine an aerodrome more conveniently situated for the large centres of population than the existing aerodrome in the desert at Gaza; and whether the scheme for a landing ground and basin for aeroplanes and hydroplanes at Tel Aviv is receiving consideration?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
Certain sites in Palestine have been provisionally selected for civil aerodromes, and the High Commissioner is obtaining expert advice as to the measures which would be necessary to convert them into permanent landing-grounds. As regards the last part of the question, I am aware that such a project has been mooted, but I have no official information on the subject.
