Volume 451: debated on Monday 30 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what steps he will take against Iceland when it resumes commercial whaling. (96264)

The UK will continue to protest at the highest diplomatic level against Iceland’s activities. I have called the Icelandic ambassador to my office to explain this decision and to voice our strong opposition to Iceland’s commercial whaling. We will continue our efforts, along with other countries, to urge Iceland to reconsider its position and reverse this unjustified and unnecessary decision.
