David Cameron rejects call to return Parthenon marbles to Greece
From The Guardian, June 22nd 2011
David Cameron has rejected a call for Britain to “put right a wrong” that dates back just short of two centuries by returning the Parthenon marbles to Greece.
Andrew George, the Liberal Democrat MP for St Ives, reopened the issue of the marble sculptures, currently in the British Museum, when he incorporated the Greek financial crisis in a Commons question.
George told Cameron at prime minister’s questions that Britain could do its bit to help Greece by returning the sculptures to Athens.
