§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, having regard to the written answer from the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster on 6 August 1980, Official Report, column 134, in which the desirability of adopting the time scale suggested by the hon. Member for Warley, East on 26 July and 17 November 1979 for the publication of the annual reports of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art was accepted, he will state when he anticipates receiving from the committee the text of its report for the year ended 30 June 1980.
§ Mr. Channon
I understand that work on the report of the reviewing committee for 1979–80 is in its final stages. The second part of the report was sent for comment to the applicants and expert advisers concerned in the usual way and the committee hopes to have these comments and to submit its report very soon.
