§ 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.
