UK fisheries minister Elliot Morley said today [Tuesday] he had no sympathy with Iceland's decision to walk out of the International Whaling Commission's (IWC) annual meeting in Japan and hoped debate would speed up so that all the important issues still to be discussed could be aired. Iceland's delegation walked out of the meeting in protest at yesterday's decision to reject their application to rejoining the IWC without signing up to the moratorium on commercial whaling.
