HC Deb 09 June 1961 vol 641 c128W
Mr. C. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington is shortly to be auctioned; and what regulations govern the grant of export licences for works of art of this kind if they are purchased by overseas buyers.

Mr. Maudling

An application for a licence to export this picture would be subject to the normal procedure for such works as set out in paragraphs 10 to 12 of the Notice to Exporters on Exports of Works of Art and Antiques, dated 13th February, 1961.
