HC Deb 24 June 1966 vol 730 c168W
Mr. Henig

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the public concern, he will refuse to grant an export licence for the diaries and certain manuscript scores of the late Sir Arthur Sullivan, which were recently auctioned in London.

Mr. Jay

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East, and Christchurch (Mr. Cordle). The diaries and the manuscript scores, with the exception of a manuscript music book sold to a purchaser in the United Kingdom, are not subject to export licensing control.

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the Notice to Exporters on the Export of Works of Art and Antiques dated 13th February, 1961.
