REDUCING THE USE OF PRIMATES IN EXPERIMENTATION
EDM #538
Tabled 19 October 2015
2015-16 Session
That this House notes the report from Cruelty Free International which highlights the severe suffering inflicted on monkeys in experiments and the increasing numbers, 73 per cent, imported from outside the EU, in particular from Mauritius and Vietnam; further notes the additional suffering involved in the international trade and transportation, the availability of alternatives and the concerns that many experiments lead to no clear scientific, medical or social benefit; and urges the Government to put forward a strategy similarly to phase out the use of monkeys, extending the existing ban on the use of Great Apes.
