Mr Latham asked the Minister for Foreign Affairs, upon notice, on 12 October 1999:

(1) Are editions of the book "Lord Elgin and the Marbles", written by William St. Clair and published by Oxford University Press, available to him and his Department; if so, which editions.

(2) On what occasions, in what circumstances and with what results was the question of the Parthenon marbles last reviewed by him or his Department.


Mr Downer (Foreign Affairs) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) If and when I or my Department require a copy, one will be obtained from various library sources.

(2) The position of the Australian government on the question of the Parthenon Marbles remains unchanged from that contained in the answer to question 422 of 15 February 1999.
