Motion text

That this House notes that 202 cats and 3,214 dogs were used in experiments in Great Britain in 2012; believes that many people will find it unacceptable that these animals continue to be used in laboratories, with one in four homes being shared with at least one dog and one in five being shared with at least one cat; further notes that many people consider their companion animals to be their best friends and would not want them, or any other companion animals to be used in laboratories; and supports the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection in calling on the Government to issue a policy statement to end the use of cats and dogs in experiments.
