UK to extend power to restitute Nazi-looted art indefinitely 2 March 2018

The UK's Holocaust (Return of Cultural Objects) Act was passed in 2009 and empowered national museums to give effect to the recommendations of the Spoliation Advisory Panel to restitute looted works of art in public collections. The Act had a ten year sunset clause and would have come to an end in 2019. Following discussions with the Commission for Looted Art in Europe and others, the UK government has decided to extend the act indefinitely. The Bill to enable this will be introduced in the House of Commons on 13 March 2018.
