In England, no Government Art Collection publicly owned works of art are on display in the open air. This Department does not collate this information for local authority museums or galleries, and to do so would exceed the disproportionate cost limit.

This Department does not hold this information for its sponsored galleries and museums. Accordingly, I have asked their chief executives to write directly to the hon. Member. Copies of the replies will be deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.

Does this answer the above question?
