Breakdown of proceeds from sale of Sekhemka statue.

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Northampton Borough Council,

The statue of Sekhemka, forming part of the collection of Northampton Museum was sold at auction last year for £15,762,500.

At the time of the sale, the leader of the Borough Council stated that every penny from the sale was ring-fenced for the Museums Service.

As it is now 10 months since the sale of that statue, please can you provide an update on:

- How much the Borough Council received from the sale.
- How much was paid to third parties.
- How much of the proceeds has so far been spent / accounted for.
- How much of the proceeds remain.

Yours faithfully,

Steve Miller, Northampton.
