asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the names of all municipal authorities which have established aerodromes; and how many applications has his Department for them at the present time for which no definite decision has been arrived at?

The answer to the first part of the question is: Blackpool, Bristol, Hull, Manchester and Nottingham. I am not sure whether I understand the inquiry in the second part; no applications are awaiting decision at the Air Ministry, but, as I stated in my reply to the hon. Member for Southampton (Mr. T. Lewis) on 12th February, a large number of municipalities are either still considering or negotiating for the purchase of sites for aerodromes, of which a considerable proportion have already been inspected by the Air Ministry.
