Britain will Hang on to Your Stolen Stuff

The Return of Cultural Objects (Revocation) Regulations 2018
This instrument will revoke the domestic regulations which implement EU Directive 2014/60, relating to the return of cultural objects unlawfully removed from the territory of EU Member States, so avoiding a one-sided obligation upon the UK to return cultural objects, in the event of 'no deal' with the EU upon exit.
Time was when doing the right thing was simply what one does. Now it seems it has become a regretworthy obligation to be avoided.

I very much doubt the proposal will be enacted. I imagine it is just one in a plethora of similar proposals designed to put pressure on the EU to enact a raft of reciprocal legislation as part of the Brexit negotiation. It's all about maintaining the concept of reciprocity.
