HC Deb 18 October 1982 vol 29 c45W
Mr. Jim Spicer

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the Government, in the light of the report made in May 1982 by the Nature Conservancy Council to the European Commission on the status of hooded and harp seals, will propose the inclusion of hooded seals on appendix 1 and harp seals on appendix 2 of the Washington convention on international trade in endangered species and support such proposals if made by other parties for CITES.

Mr. Macfarlane:

I am still considering what CITES listings would be appropriate for these two species.
