asked the Secretary of State for Air if he has now released the land at Theale airfield for agricultural use; and when he expects to hand back the farm buildings there which are essential to the proper farming of the land.

Yes. The land at Theale was released for farming to the agricultural executive committee a year ago and it is expected that, except for buildings used by other Government Departments, the airfield will have been returned to its owners by the middle of February. The farm building, which is a barn, is held by the Ministry of Transport, and the date of its release is therefore a matter for that Department.
