Motion text

That this House notes the forthcoming transposition of the European Directive on the protection of animals used in scientific procedures; is concerned that transposition of the Directive could lead to a lowering of UK standards, for example, reducing the frequency of inspections and lifting restrictions on the use of cats, dogs and horses; welcomes the Government consultation's acceptance that the new Directive necessitates greater transparency; and calls on the Government to maintain and enforce higher UK standards wherever they exceed the minimum requirements in the Directive.
