§ Sir Clive Bossom
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if she will provide a special grant to assist in retaining in the United Kingdom the picture "Five of Lord Gower's Children" by Romney, now for sale.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
It is for the individual galleries to consider in the first instance whether they wish to acquire this 15W painting which cannot be exported without an export licence. If an application for a special purchase grant is received it will be considered.
