ANIMALS IN MEDICAL RESEARCH
EDM #1850
Tabled 20 March 2006
2005-06 Session
That this House notes that UK regulation of animal research is among the tightest in the world, that animal research is only permitted where there is no better alternative and that pain and suffering are minimised and balanced against the potential benefit to humans and animals; recognises that good facilities enable scientists to conduct world-class research, potentially leading to new treatments for a number of life-threatening diseases, including leukaemia, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cancer, diabetes and Parkinson's disease and that such research has already produced many lifesaving drugs including penicillin and other antibiotics, insulin for diabetes, chemotherapy for childhood leukaemia, and medicines for asthma, high blood pressure and ulcers; therefore supports the building of the new state of the art biomedical research laboratory at Oxford University, which will improve the facilities currently used to house research animals and so enhance animal welfare; applauds the Pro-Test movement in Oxford for their support of scientific research including animal based research; condemns unlawful animal rights extremism, including any violence, harassment or intimidation of those associated with lawful animal research; and supports the well-regulated use of animals in medical research.
