§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects the Chair of State to be returned permanently to the Palace of Westminster; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir George Young
[pursuant to his reply, 21 April 1986, c. 69.]: I understand that the Chair of State made for Prince Albert was recently purchased by the National Heritage Memorial Fund. The trustees of the fund intend to restore the chair with a view to its return to the Palace of Westminster.
