HC Deb 10 March 1986 vol 93 c360W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Minister for the Arts if he will state for each year since 1979 the length of time which elapsed between the end of the year to which successive reports of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art related and the publication of the relevant report; to what factors he attributes the length of these periods and the trend shown by them; and what steps he is taking to reduce the time taken to publish these reports.

Mr. Luce

I shall let the hon. Member have a reply as soon as possible.
