asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that two new large hangars are being erected at St. Mawgan aerodrome in Cornwall; and whether, in view of the urgent demand for the labour involved for housing in the county, their erection will be suspended until houses have been built.

These two extra hangars are being erected at St. Mawgan so that we can concentrate an extra transport unit there which would otherwise be occupying a separate airfield and requiring the services of a separate station staff. Not more than sixty men of building trades will be needed at one time and their work will be finished by the end of the year.
