HC Deb 26 June 1979 vol 969 c105W
Mr. Robert Atkins

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (1) what is his policy towards the report published by the Turner Society on 18 June;

(2) what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the fulfilment of the Turner bequest.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The report concerns the Turner bequest, which is vested in the Trustees of the National Gallery and the Tate Gallery. It is for them, not for me, to formulate policy concerning the bequest and to satisfy themselves that they are fulfilling the terms under which it was made.
