Motion text

That this House welcomes the report from the Nuffield Council on Bioethics on The Ethics of Research Involving Animals as a balanced contribution to a controversial debate; shares the Council's concerns about the potential effect of new EU chemicals legislation in greatly increasing animal testing; and agrees with its recommendations to make the maximum use of data-sharing, to develop alternative means of testing chemicals, and to search for ways to continue reducing and refining animal tests to improve both science and animal welfare.
