Motion text

That this House notes the number of whales under risk from polluting adding to the threat of hunting; recognises that, with seven of the 13 species of great whale listed on the World Conservation Union's Red List of Threatened Species as either endangered or vulnerable, all efforts should be made to control pesticides and chemicals dumped at sea, combined with further efforts to curb hunting for commercial and scientific purposes; expresses its concern at news that Iceland is set to resume whaling; and calls on the Government to do all it can to work with the International Whaling Commission to protect whales from pollution and to bring unnecessary hunting to an end.
