Andy Burnham [holding answer 29 April 2009]: The DCMS contribution to the cost of the Digital Britain summit was £20,000.

I am arranging for copies of the list of attendees to be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

Mr. Philip Hammond: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the (a) total purchase price and (b) estimated current market value are of the works of art from the Government Art Collection displayed in the private offices of HM Treasury Ministers. [271200]

Barbara Follett: Works from the Government Art Collection in private offices of Treasury Ministers, and their purchase prices, are set out in the following table.

All prices include VAT where applicable.

It is not possible to provide a current value for each of these works. The monetary value of a work of art can be accurately assessed only at the time of its purchase, sale or by professional valuation. The collection is not actively traded and it would not be a justifiable expenditure of public funds to maintain up-to-date professional valuations of the collection.
