HC Deb 06 December 1988 vol 143 c113W
Mr. Soames

To ask the Minister for the Arts if there have been any items accepted in lieu of tax or allocated since he last made an announcement on the subject to the House.

Mr. Luce

Since my announcement on 12 July, at column101, I am pleased to announce that two items have been accepted in lieu of tax; a flower painting by Jacob Marrel and a print by William Blake, Frontispiece to the Book of Ahania. The tax liability satisfied was £61,369 and £19,658, respectively. The Blake print will go to the Fitzwilliam museum but a decision over the allocation of the Maud painting has not yet been taken.
