LCM for the Cultural Objects (Protection from Seizure) Bill Letter from National Galleries Scotland
Letter from Sir John Leighton, Director-General, National Galleries Scotland, to the Convener, 22 February 2022
Dear Ms Adamson
I refer to your letter of 7 February 2022 in which you seek the views of the National Galleries of Scotland in relation to your Committee’s scrutiny of the above private member’s Bill.
We welcome this amendment and are supportive of the Bill. This will enable us to alleviate potential lender concerns and continue to provide immunity from seizure, should an object be delayed while on loan.
Sir John Leighton
