HC Deb 05 July 1971 vol 820 cc249-50W
91. Mr. Edelman

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, in view of the fact that the circumstances of the sale of the Death of Actæon at Christie's are contrary to the Auctions (Bidding Agreements) Act, 1927, what steps he intends to take in prosecuting those responsible and concerning the sale.

Mr. John Davies

If the hon. Member has evidence that an offence has been committed he should bring it to the notice of the police. Enforcement of the Auctions (Bidding Agreements) Act, 1927, is not the responsibility of my Department.
