Motion text

That this House notes the publication of the MORI poll Views on the use of animals in scientific research which found that only 43 per cent of respondents `expect that the rules in Britain on animal experimentation are well enforced' and 33 per cent had a `lack of trust in the regulatory system in the UK'; welcomes the emerging consensus that animal experiments should be open to transparent and informed debate, as called for by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection and a number of leading universities; and calls on the Government to publish routinely the experiment project licences that its inspectors approve, after removal of personal or commercially confidential information, so as to facilitate such a debate.
