The purpose of the Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art is to help retain objects of outstanding historical, aesthetic or scholarly importance in the UK. The Waverley system allows deferral of decisions about the granting of export licences in order to provide UK institutions or private individuals with an opportunity to purchase items before they are exported. This is the Committee's 50th annual report which covers its work in the year July 2003 to April 2004, during which period there were 8,089 licence applications, and the proposed export of 18 art objects was considered by the Committee. Of these, the Committee recommended 10 cases for referral to the DCMS as having met the Waverley criteria. Nine were accepted for deferral, with a total value of [pound]7.7 million; with the licence refused without a deferral period for one item. The 18 export cases detailed include: paintings by Camille Pissaro, Claude-Joseph Vernet, Annibale Carracci, Andrea Soldi and Richard Parkes Bonington; papers of Sir James Watt and family; drawings by William Stukeley; a Regency carved mahogany table; and a pair of silver wine coolers.
