HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 cc282-3W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he accepts the National Art Collections Fund as an appropriate institution or body to be specified in a will as a recipient by a testator who directs that works of art should be offered in satisfaction of estate duties conditionally on their passing to the fund, and whether he will give an assurance that ineligibility of the fund for this purpose will not be adduced as a ground for Treasury rejection of such an offer.

Mr. Nott

Yes. I have already written to the Chairman of the NACF assuring him that the fund will be eligible for this purpose.
