Motion text

That this House notes with concern the statement made by Japanese Fisheries Minister Maseyuku Komatsu in relation to using overseas aid to influence other countries in the Caribbean and South Pacific to support their commercial whaling proposals; believes this is an abuse of much needed overseas aid, and a deliberate tactic to halt progress on a worldwide whaling ban; and calls on the Government to do all it can to ensure that this practice is not allowed to continue and work with the International Whaling Commission to ensure whaling is banned.
