The legislation governing the hunting of whales1 and seals2 has not been repealed. However, the United Kingdom government supports the International Whaling Commission's moratorium on commercial whaling that has existed since 1985 and opposes all forms of whaling, other than limited aboriginal subsistence whaling when there is a traditional and nutritional need for whaling and whale meat3. In the current climate it seems unlikely that further licences for whaling will be granted in the United Kingdom.
