HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 c612W
Mr. Cormack

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will make an early announcement of the Tate Gallery's purchase grants for 1978–79 so that the trustees will be in a position to know whether they can acquire Gainsborough's portrait of Sir Benjamin Truman for which an export licence has recently been withheld.

Mr. Oakes

An announcement will be made when the Estimates are laid before the House.
