HC Deb 18 June 1979 vol 968 c365W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what representations have been made to include preserved steam-driven railway locomotives and stationary engines on the list of archaelogical items subject to export licences.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

Steam engines are already covered by the export control. An export licence is needed for any item over 50 years old and worth £8,000 or more
