We are aware of the Honourable Member’s support for the UK temporarily housing the Bayeux Tapestry. Cultural exchanges between France and the UK are flourishing, and we want to ensure they continue to do so. Individual loans are a matter for the relevant institutions, but I shall certainly register with my French counterpart the willingness of UK museums to host the Tapestry, should a suitable opportunity arise.
