asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused to local residents by the continued closure of a section of the main road A 2024 and other roads adjoining Tangmere Aerodrome; and when it is intended to restore these rights of way, or what alternative provision will be made for members of the public.

Part of the A 2024 road south of the R.A.F. Station, Tang-mere, part of Tangmere Lane and a toot-path that crosses the airfield, will have to be permanently closed because of the continued use of this station. I have agreed with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport that a diversion should be provided for the A 2024 road. The construction of this and other diversions that may be necessary is, I understand, now under consideration by my right hon. Friend and the highway authority.
