I have four works of art from the Government Art Collection (GAC) on display in my private office. They are:

'Gunner Paul March (Canadian Forces)' by Henry Lamb

'A Merchantman at Catania' by Bernard Hailstone

'Dust in Normandy, August 1944' by Stephen Bone

'The Southwest Prospect of the City of Durham' by Samuel and Nathaniel Buck

No other Ministers have art from the GAC on display in their private offices.
