    Letter – The Times, 9 Dec 14
    “Where should the Elgin Marbles be housed?”
    Sir, On balance, the case for the British Museum retaining the Elgin Marbles stands (reports, Dec 5 & 6), but it has been gravely weakened by the irresponsible and gratuitously provocative loan of one of the works…Reducing risk is not the same as eliminating or declining to incur it. Positively embracing risk by placing the sculpture successively on…can only be seen as a failure of imagination and a dereliction of duties on the part of the museum’s trustees.”
