asked the Secretary of State for Air when he is going to decide the future limits of Tangmere aerodrome.

The limits of the main runway and overshoot at Tangmere have now been settled and have been notified to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport, who is consulting the highway authority on the provision of alternative routes for the highways affected.

Does the hon. Gentleman know that he has held up his right hon. Friend for about a year in this matter? Can he say when he arrived at the decision and whether it was before I put the Question down?

The decision was delayed owing to alterations in the specification on the part of Fighter Command.
