In its advice RC 1.4 dated 7 April 2003 the Restitutions Committee with regard to the allocation of any possible repayment of monies received for the restitution of artworks recommended the State Secretary to request the Ekkart Committee for advice.  It concerned sums which can be requested to be repaid if the former owners received the purchase price or part thereof to spend as they wished after forced sale during the war. In line with the above, the committee recommends that if such monies are received these should be added to the payment intended for the cultural charities referred to in the above paragraph according to the same allocation ratio.  

Recommendation 8

The committee recommends the allocation  of any possible incoming repayments for the restitution of works of art in accordance with Recommendation 7.
