ELGIN MARBLES
EDM #947
Tabled 04 June 1996
1995-96 Session
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House congratulates Channel 4 on the quality and success of its recent Fifteen-to-One special programme about the Elgin Marbles; notes that in a subsequent telephone poll 92.5 per cent. out of 100,000 respondents voted in favour of the return of the marbles to Greece; considers that though there may have been plausible arguments in the past for the retention of these marbles in the British Museum, this poll provides clear evidence of public recognition that the case for their return is now transcendent; and therefore calls upon Her Majesty's Government to enter forthwith into immediate negotiations for this purpose with the government of Greece.
