§ Mr. Baldry
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 19 December at column2, I am pleased to announce that three items have been accepted in lieu of tax; a drawing by Rubens, a sculpture by Naum Gabo, and "The Artist's Studio" by Peter Tillemans. The tax liability satisfied was £50,000, £286,610 and £52,270 respectively. The Tillemans painting will go to the Castle museum, Norwich but a decision over the allocation of the other two items has not yet been taken.
