WHALING IN THE FAROE ISLANDS
EDM #156
Tabled 07 June 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House expresses concern at the continuing practice of pilot whaling which takes place in the Faroe Islands; notes that hundreds of pilot whales are killed each year as a result of these activities; expresses deep concern at the suffering faced by the animals during these hunts; further notes that whilst in the past whale hunting may have been necessary for sustenance this is no longer the case; further notes that in November 2008 the chief medical officers of the Faroe Islands recommended that pilot whales should no longer be considered fit for human consumption because of the levels of toxins in the whales and therefore sees no justification in continuing this unnecessary practice; and calls on the Government to make representations to the Faroe Islands government requesting that they bring about an end to whaling in the area.
