Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Art Market (21 Mar 2005)

Ms Estelle Morris: The right hon. Gentleman is correct in saying that the Government have argued vociferously in Europe about the droit de suite.

Let us be clear about what this measure will mean. It will mean...

Ms Estelle Morris: I am aware of the huge amount of work that the hon. Gentleman has done in this regard, and of his part in the enactment of the legislation.

Ms Estelle Morris: Yes; my hon. Friend has a particular interest in this issue, given his constituency, and I pay tribute to the work that he does. There is no doubt that English Heritage has re-organised its education service in the past few years.
