Motion text

That this House welcomes the Government's pledge to support a Royal Commission to review the procedures and ethics of animal experimentation; urges that such a Commission should be set up as quickly as possible; looks forward to legislation outlawing the test of weapons, cosmetics, cigarettes or alcohol products on animals and the use of the LD50 test, as promised in the pre-election publication New Labour, New Life for Animals; in the meantime, strongly recommends that more resources are made available to ensure proper implementation of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986; proposes that the technical details of licences granted under the Act and information regarding breaches of the regulations are made more easily available to the public; and strongly condemns the secrecy and lack of public accountability surrounding animal experimentation.
