asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied with the results of the recent meeting of the International Whaling Commission; and if he will make a statement.

The twenty-ninth meeting of the International Whaling Commission finished in Canberra last week and I have at present only a preliminary report of the proceedings. The Scientific Committee recommendations have led to an overall reduction in quotas from 28,050 to 17,839, and the United Kingdom has played its part in securing these and other useful results. I hope to study the United Kingdom delegation's full report very shortly.
