Condemn whaling in strongest terms - McCully
National Party Conservation spokesman Murray McCully says New Zealand must condemn Iceland's plans to resume commercial whaling in the strongest possible terms.
"National would like to lend its support to the strongest message being sent from New Zealand to Iceland. That country needs to know that the largest parties in our Parliament stand united in their opposition to the Iceland announcement and the message this sends to other whaling nations," says Mr McCully.
