Scoop Audio: PM Talks About Whales And Weather

Scoop Audio: PM Talks About Whales And Weather

The Prime Minister stands at a podium last week – the PM looked much the same this week but the podium of the Beehive Theatrette is now an advertising free zone – (no garish media microphones)

********

Yesterday Japan won a simple majority on a significant vote at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) for the first time. Conservation Minister Chris Carter expressed disappointment that six pacific nations at the IWC Tuvalu, Kiribati, Nauru, Palau, the Marshall Islands and the Solomons – all voted with Japan.

The decision of New Zealand's small pacific friends to support Japan regarding harpooning whales was a key theme of yesterday's post cabinet press conference. The Prime Minister also took questions on the recent weather and electricity outages and Trevor Mallard's ambitions to one day be New Zealand's Finance Minister.

Listen to the PM discussing the plight of the whales from hungry Japanese and the recent weather
