§ Sir R. Acland
asked the Secretary of State for Air when he expects to be able to inform the owner of the land comprised in an aerodrome, about which the hon. Member for Barnstaple has communicated with him, whether his land is to be leased or purchased; and when he can make a payment on account?
§ Sir K. Wood
It has been decided to purchase the land referred to and negotiations will be opened immediately between the Air Ministry valuers and the owner and tenants concerned. Subject to satisfactory evidence as to title, a payment on account would be made if there is likely to be undue delay in the completion of the conveyance.
