asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how much was paid to Scottish Aviation, Ltd., for services rendered as managers of Prest-wick Airport during the war; and how much has been paid in compensation to this company.

During the war, Scottish Aviation Ltd., were reimbursed the expenditure they incurred in running Prest-wick Airport, and received in addition a management fee of £10,000 a year. A payment of £22,500 was made on account of the compensation due in respect of the requisitioning of the company's property, and the balance formed part of the agreed settlement to which I referred in answer to the hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) on 3rd March.
