asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will take steps to improve the sewage disposal facilities in the Royal Air Force station at Khormakgsar, Aden.

A contract will shortly be let for the connection of the drains at Royal Air Force Khormakgsar to the Aden Government's new main drainage system which is designed to meet the needs of the population as a whole and is almost complete.

asked the Secretary of State for Air what facilities are available for the supply of hot meals to transit passengers in the Royal Air Force station at Khormakgsar, Aden.

In the normal case, where the aircraft has stopped for refuelling only, light refreshments are served in the passenger lounge. If there is a protracted delay or passengers have to stay overnight, meals and accommodation are available at Red Sea House about five miles away. By next May we plan to have a new transit mess at Royal Air Force, Khormakgsar which will provide additional facilities, including hot meals, for 100 airmen.
