David Burrowes questions the Government on efforts to limit further damage to the cultural heritage of Mosul

7th November 2016

David Burrowes asks the Secretary of State for Defence about efforts to limit further damage to the cultural heritage of Mosul and backs the work of Lieutenant Colonel Tim Purbrick’s cultural property protection working group.

Mosul has suffered deeply from cultural destruction. As we look forward to the ratification of The Hague convention, what will the armed forces do to limit further damage to the cultural heritage of Mosul and support the good work of Lieutenant Colonel Tim Purbrick’s cultural property protection working group, more catchily known as the monuments men?

 

We have consulted international partners on best practice and have tasked the Army with establishing a cultural property protection unit, which will help to ensure that cultural property is protected from damage and looting, will provide advice, training and support to operational planning processes, and can investigate, record and report cultural property issues from any area of operations. I know that my hon. Friend will join me in welcoming our intention to ratify the convention, through legislation before the House, early next year.
