David Burrowes calls on the PM to ratify The Hague convention to protect cultural heritage in armed conflict

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on the G7 Summit in Germany, David Burrowes highlights the looting and destruction of cultural heritage by ISIL and calls on the PM to urgently ratify The Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict.

Mr David Burrowes (Enfield, Southgate) (Con): On combating ISIL and tackling corruption, with ISIL looting and destroying cultural heritage and trafficking its spoils, when will we finally join the international community and ratify The Hague convention?
The Prime Minister: The Culture Secretary rightly raised this with me yesterday. We are looking at what we can do on this front. We have, in organisations such as the British Museum, the expertise to know how to help to preserve some of these monuments. We also have advisers in countries that are able to help, so we are looking urgently at this issue to see whether we can resolve it.
