Description: On 8 December 2008, the 2007-08 annual report of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art and Objects of Cultural Interest was published. Following recommendations by the Committee, temporary export bars were placed on sixteen items of cultural significance which came before the Committee between 1 May 2007 and 30 April 2008. Of these, eight items worth £1.4 million were purchased and will remain in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, funds could not be raised for all items found to be of outstanding significance. Export licences were issued for seven items worth £12.8 million.
