asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether arrangements have now been made for a clause to be included in the sealers' annual licence requiring the use of humane instruments for the killing of elephant seals in South Georgia.
Yes, Sir. A clause to this effect has been included in all new licences.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that I am very much obliged to him for his answer, and I have no doubt that the elephant seals will be, too?
