As has been the case under successive administrations, the general practice is to only transport, install and remove works of art from the Government Art Collection during refurbishment projects, such as the ongoing programme to refurbish 70 Whitehall which began under a previous administration. Management Units are able to request installation or removal of art work but expenditure incurred in these circumstances is not identified separately on my Department's financial systems.
