"The statement by new Environment Minister Ian Campbell attacking plans by Iceland and Japan to increase the slaughter of whales under the guise of scientific research is for domestic consumption," Senator Brown said.

"It is not going to make one iota of difference, whereas his presence at the International Whaling Commission meeting would be shown as serious intent by Australia to protect whales.

"The minister should be there."
