HC Deb 21 May 1998 vol 312 c483W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations Her Majesty's Government have made to the Governments of Norway and Japan to bring about an end to the whaling activities of these countries within the designated whale sanctuary in Antarctic waters. [43090]

Mr. Morley

My Government colleagues and I take every opportunity to draw the attention of the Japanese and Norwegian Governments to our continuing opposition to the former' s whaling activities in the Southern Ocean Sanctuary and to the latter's commercial whaling in the North Atlantic. The United Kingdom delegation will be making our views very clear at the meeting of the International Whaling Commission that is currently taking place in Oman.
