HL Deb 26 March 1998 vol 587 c252WA
Lord Freyberg

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many cases of objects offered through the acceptance-in-lieu system are at present being considered; and how long they have been under consideration. [HL973]

Lord McIntosh of Haringey

There are 12 offers currently under consideration in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Eight of those have been with the Department for three months or less. The other four cases have required detailed scrutiny and consultation, and have now been with the department for periods of between 11 and 15 months. I expect them to be decided shortly.
