§ Dr. David Clark
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which works of art held by his Department have been purchased by staff to use as gifts; to whom they were given; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Arbuthnot
My Department knows of only one such purchase. Senior civil servants in my Department purchased the reproduction "A View of the Admiralty" to present to the right hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell Sir A. Hamilton on his departure from the post of Minister of State for the Armed Forces in 1993.
