Motion text

That this House notes the publication of Working to reduce the use of animals in scientific research, following the pledge in the Coalition Agreement to work to reduce the use of animals in scientific research; believes that effective implementation of this should lead to specific targets; is concerned that the document contains neither timescales nor targets for any reduction; and supports the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection in its call for the Government to set unambiguous targets for reductions in animal experiments before the end of the current Parliament.
