Lieut.-Colonel JAMES

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether his Department is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep, safe custody, and repairs of pictures, tapestries, and works of art in the Royal Palace of Hampton Court?


My Department is responsible for the upkeep and cleaning of the Palace generally, including the furniture (and tapestries), but the pictures are in the charge of the Lord Chamberlain's Department.
