§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when, in view of a reply received by the hon. Member for Warley, East, Official Report, 15 December 1978, c. 490, to the effect that the 24th Report of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art covering the year ended 30 June 1978 would be published during the spring of 1979, he anticipates publication of the report in question; and whether, having regard to current widespread anxiety concerning the dispersal of the national heritage, he will give instructions that future reports of the committee should be published not more than seven months after the conclusion of the period under review.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The 24th Report of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art will be published shortly. I will do my best to ensure that future reports of the reviewing committee are published as soon as possible after the end of the year under review.
