HC Deb 27 May 1976 vol 912 cc370-1W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will initiate discussions in UNESCO to establish an international convention for the return to their countries of origin of national treasures of particular religious or cultural significance.

Mr. Luard

No. The question of restitution of cultural property is already under consideration by UNESCO and Her Majesty's Government will be playing a full part in discussions of the subject.
