Motion text

That this House notes the publication of the Statistics of Scientific Procedures on Living Animals 2012 report; expresses concern that 4,033,310 animals were used in scientific procedures in Great Britain in 2012, an increase of 8.7 per cent on the 2011 figure and the highest at any point since the current statistics regime was introduced by the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 and the third successive year that the number has increased; further notes that the increase contrasts with the pledge in the Coalition Programme for Government to 'work to reduce the use of animals in scientific research'; is very disappointed with the lack of progress being made on this issue; and calls on the Government to immediately publish its strategy on how numbers can be reduced.
