That this House recognises the important role played by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in protecting whales and marine conservation; further recognises the importance of continuing with that protection and maintaining the international moratorium on commercial whaling; welcomes the anti-whaling majority vote at the IWC 59 meeting in May; urges members of the IWC to resist the sustained efforts of pro-whaling countries to undermine the international moratorium; and calls upon Government departments to work together and pro-actively lobby more countries to join the IWC to support the international moratorium.
