Volume 447: debated on Friday 16 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions (a) she and (b) her predecessor has had with Ministers from countries which are members of the Commonwealth on whaling; and if she will make a statement. (78036)

Whaling is not part of the Commonwealth agenda and was not raised at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting last year.

Australia and New Zealand share the UK’s view of whaling and co-operate bilaterally at official level.
