    A meeting of parliamentary speakers Tuesday approved a proposal by House Speaker Nikos Voutsis for the re-establishment of a cross-party committee that will seek reparations from Germany for the Nazi occupation of Greece.    Earlier, Voutsis told the House’s deputy speakers that “the issue of German war reparations to Greece and the Greek people remains open, part of an inerasable debt that seeks its moral, historic and legal vindication.”    He added that it was the duty of Greece’s Parliament to “actively participate in the preparation and organization of Greece’s claims.”
