§ 65. Sir J. Vaughan-Morgan
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that there has been no transfer of funds outside this country as a result of any recent purchases of paintings from foreign citizens resident in this country; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Harold Lever
Exchange Control permission is normally granted for payments of this kind. Such permission was granted to the National Gallery in September for payment of £150,000 in connection with the purchase which the hon. Gentleman may well have in mind.
