§ 39. Sir J. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what statistical evidence he bases his conclusion that the sperm whale is not in danger of over-exploitation.
§ Mr. Bishop
My conclusion that the sperm whale is not in danger of over-768W exploitation is based on population estimates produced by the International Whaling Commission's Scientific Committee at which are represented virtually all the world's whaling experts.
