Bulwell MP Graham Allen backs calls for Japan to halt whale slaughter

BULWELL’S Labour MP, Graham Allen, is backing a call for Japan to halt the planned slaughter of up to 1,000 whales in Antarctica.

Mr Allen is co-sponsoring a Parliamentary Early Day Motion asking the Japanese government to recall its whaling fleet.

A similar tactic last year was a success as the Japanese bowed to international pressure after just 30 whales were killed.
