Since my Department took over responsibility for Heathfield aerodrome in February, a survey has been made of the existing buildings and arrangements have been made for the demolition of those which are derelict and can serve no useful purpose. Tenders have been invited for a contract to demolish these buildings, and to remove the materials, at an early date.

As these huts have been an eyesore at this place for the last seven years, will my hon. Friend and his right hon. Friend go into their usual hustle in order to get rid of it?

Yes, Sir; certainly. I hope these eyesores will be removed by mid-July.
