asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation the number of men employed in the Southampton Marine Airport at the end of March, 1950, with the comparative figure for the end of March, 1948.

I understand that British Overseas Airways Corporation employees at Southampton Marine Airport numbered about 160 on 1st April, 1948, and about 100 on 1st April, 1950. In addition, Ministry of Civil Aviation employees at the airport numbered one on 1st April, 1948, and 14 on 1st April, 1950. These last figures are not, however, comparable since in 1948, the Ministry of Civil Aviation services at the airport were provided from staff stationed elsewhere.
