Therefore, it is suggested that the facilities held by NWAC and these to be allocated from DOT be taken over at the same time when the latter facilities have been allocated and your CHQ informed thereof.

3. May arrangements be made with the AOC concerned to take over the facilities held by the Department of National Defence at each of the above sites.

4. Air Transport Command has not recommended the transfer of the RCAF holdings at Pendleton to your Command.
