HC Deb 02 February 1998 vol 305 c457W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what progress is being made on the compilation of the inventory of works of art held by the Sovereign. [26487]

Mr. Fisher

I understand from the Royal Household, which is responsible for the Royal Collection Department, that the first phase of the computerised inventory of the Royal Collection (basic data capture and inputting) has been completed on schedule. In the second phase, consideration will be given to the best way of refining this information, and making it more widely accessible.
