Australia Delays Whaling Surveillance

So what's up with this new "get tough" anti-whaling policy for Australia?

In December, the Federal Government announced that an Australian Antarctic Division plane would operate surveillance flights over the fleet in the Southern Ocean.

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority says it only received an application to approve the surveillance flights on Friday so it will not begin assessing the proposal until tomorrow.


Doesn't sound like it's much of a priority now for the new government.
