The officers of the Air Force have made a report to me that the buildings at Camp Borden are deteriorating in value. In addition to that, as
we all know', some of the buildings were burnt down last year. The officers have also reported that seeing that hydroplanes were coming into almost universal use, and would be more useful in the prosecution of their work it might be advisable to move them to some other- place w'here they would be closer to the water, but no action has been taken in regard to the report.
