That this House recognises the economic and scientific need to support advanced scientific human-relevant research methods; notes that the goal of Recital 10 of EU Directive 2010/63/EU is ‘full replacement of procedures on live animals for scientific and educational purposes as soon as scientifically possible’; supports the Declaration for Advanced Science, championed by Animal Defenders International, supported by scientists and other stakeholders and acknowledging that animal models can provide misleading results; and calls for the Government to lead globally in the development of innovative science, better for animals and people, by supporting research and considering legislative measures which facilitate and accelerate the realisation of this goal.
