To ask Her Majesty's Government what procedures are in place to process any complaint about the display of images of the Royal Family in publicly funded buildings; and what steps they take to determine the level of any compensation paid as a result of such a complaint.
Answer (Lord Young of Cookham)
No further assessment has been made of how and where portraits of the Royal Family are displayed across the UK.
Civil Servants are free to raise concerns about any issue and should follow their departmental procedures to resolve disputes and grievances. Compensation payments are not routinely paid as part of this process.
