Parthenon marbles repatriation

A proposal for the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece was tabled in the State Legislative Assembly of Western Australia by governing Labor Party (ALP) member John Biase D’ Orazio.

According to the proposal, the Legislative Assembly is called to support the wish of the Greek-Australian Community as regards the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece and their display in the New Acropolis Museum in Athens.

He also suggests that the W. Australia state parliament convey this stance to the UK government in a proper manner.
