HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 cc218-20W
Mr. David Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will seek to impose further restrictions on the export of antique furniture and other objects of historic and artistic value in the interest of the national heritage.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I have dealt with the general subject of export control in the debate on Museums (Purchase Grants) on 31st January and also in answers to Questions by the hon. Member for Ipswich (Mr. Ernle Money) on 5th February 1973. Antique furniture raises no additional problem.—[Vol. 849, c. 1509.24; Vol. 850, c. 24, 25.]
