Lord Astor of Hever
asked Her Majesty's Government:Whether any items accepted in lieu of inheritance tax have been allocated in Scotland since they last made an announcement.
The Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Scottish Office
(The Earl of Lindsay)
I am pleased to announce that my right honourable friend is allocating the painting The Return from the Flight into Egypt by the 16th century artist Paris Bordone to the National Galleries of Scotland. The painting has been accepted in lieu of tax arising from the death of Colonel W. J. Stirling of Keir.
