Abstract: A description is given of the compact Hausdorff spaces S such that the Banach space $ C(S)$ of continuous functions on S is a $ {P_\lambda }$-space for $ \lambda < 3$ (under the assumption that S satisfies the countable chain condition). The existence of extension operators from $ C({X^\ast}\backslash X)$ to $ C({X^\ast})$ is examined under the assumption that $ C({X^\ast})$ is injective where $ {X^\ast}$ is some compactification of a locally compact extremally disconnected Hausdorff space X (if $ C(S)$ is injective, S is of this form). Some new examples of injective spaces $ C(S)$ are given.
