1. So far as the department of national defence is concerned, the R.C.A.F. station at Carberry, Manitoba, is now in process of being declared surplus to the crown assets allocation committee w'ith the exception of: (a) twelve buildings being retained temporarily for the storage of R.C.A.F. reserve equipment; (b) five buildings being dismantled for use elsewhere; (c) a recreation hall being retained for air cadet use. The buildings specified in (a) above will ultimately be declared surplus to crown assets allocation committee.

2. Representation was received from Mr. B. W. Caldwell, mayor of Carberry, and the merits of continued use of this airport by the department of national defence were fully considered before the above decision was made.
