From the opening statement of Don Bonker: "The Subcommittee on International Organizations meets this morning for the first in a two-part series of hearings on the 32d Annual International Whaling Commission meeting, to be held in Brighton, England, from July 21 to July 26, 1980. Last year, the subcommittee held several hearings on the 31st IWC [International Whaling Commission] session, and successfully gained unanimous House passage of a resolution urging the IWC to adopt a moratorium on commercial whaling. This, along with the President's proclamation on putting an end to commercial whaling, contributed to our efforts at the IWC conference in England last year and made possible considerable progress in this area."

Frank, Leslie H. Brown, James A. Joseph, and Anne Crichton.
