The British Museum is considering loaning the Elgin Marbles to Greece, but not permanently returning them.

The British Museum said it was “open to discussions regarding a short-term loan of some of the objects but not a permanent return.

“The trustees of the British Museum will consider — subject to the usual considerations of condition and fitness to travel — any request for any part of the collection to be borrowed and then returned,” it said.
