Leicester's claim to become the final resting place for the remains of King Richard III is "historically dodgy, bogus and frankly arrogant", a North Yorkshire MP has suggested.
Some experts have claimed evidence suggests he wanted to be buried in York Minster, and not Leicester where his remains were found near the site of his death in battle.
But speaking in the Commons, Julian Smith said: "North Yorkshire is the only place for him to return to according to his wishes".
Leader of the House Andrew Lansley said the "straight forward" legal postion gives the University of Leicester the right to decide his final resting place.
Leicester City Council and Leicester Cathedral have already revealed plans for the remains to be re-interred next year.
The York Outer MP Julian Sturdy is supporting the campaign to have Richard III buried in York.
Mr Sturdy also announced that he has written to the Archbishop of York, the Ministry of Justice and the Private Secretary to Her Majesty the Queen, to request that the Yorkist King’s final resting place be considered very carefully.

“As the last Yorkist King of England and last King to die in battle, Richard III is hugely important to the heritage of our historic city of York. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that King Richard wished to be buried in York and particularly in the Minster.. .... The people of York and indeed Yorkshire are extremely grateful for the excellent work carried out by the archaeologists and the University of Leicester. We merely want the options for King Richard’s final resting place to be properly considered
The MP for Skipton and Ripon is supporting calls for the remains of King Richard III to be returned and re-interred in North Yorkshire.
Julian Smith claims that before his death in 1485 Richard of York said he wanted to be buried at York Minster.

It has been repeated through the centuries that his wish was to be buried in York and, now his remains have been discovered, his wish should be granted.
Mr Smith continued: “No-one wants another war over this. We should thank Leicester for discovering his remains but they should now be returned to North Yorkshire for the proper burial he deserves in the place he wanted to be remembered.
“I will now be writing to the University of Leicester and Ministry of Justice, who granted the licence for the exhumation, to make this case.”
The sort of weapon used to kill King Richard III has been revealed at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. Yesterday, a team of experts including Bob Woosnam-Savage, a curator at the museum, confirmed that the skeleton found in a Leicester car park was the last king of the House of York.
More than 1,000 people have signed an official government petition to have Richard III re-interred at York Minster. The last king of the House of York was recently found buried in a car park in Leicester.
His remains are due to buried at the city's cathedral, but a campaign has now started to bring him back to his native Yorkshire.
A reconstruction of the head of King Richard III has been unveiled to the world's media in London following yesterday's announcement that his skeleton had been found under a Leicester car park.
The model was built using a CT scan taken of the king's skull by the archaeological dig.
The unveiling is being held at The Society of Antiquaries in London.
