HC Deb 13 February 1985 vol 73 cc202-3W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State answering in respect of the Arts what consultations Her Majesty's Government are having to ensure the retention in the United Kingdom of the collection of Chippendale furniture at Nostell Priory made specifically for that house.

Mr. Waldegrave

My right hon. and noble Friend met Lord St. Oswald recently to discuss this matter. No formal offer has yet been received regarding the Chippendal collection.
