HC Deb 07 July 1998 vol 315 c429W
Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport when the inventory of works of art in the Royal Collection was completed; and if he will make a statement. [48501]

Mr. Fisher

I understand from the Royal Household, which is responsible for the Royal Collection Department, that the computerised inventory of the Royal Collection was completed in December 1997. Further development work on the use of the inventory, especially to enhance electronic public access to the Royal Collection, will take place over the next five years.
