Action Alert: BUAV Launches Government E-Petition Re Animal Experiments

Today the BUAV launched a Government e-petition calling for a Parliamentary debate on animal experiments. In 2010, the UK used over 3.6 million animals in experiments, reaching a 25 year high. This year is crucial for animals in laboratories as the Government is currently considering its approach to three key aspects of animal testing:

  • the adoption of a new EU Directive on animal experiments into UK law;
  • a strategy to fulfil the Government pledge to reduce the use of animals in scientific research; and
  • the Government’s position on a possible delay to the 2013 deadline for the EU marketing ban on new animal tested cosmetics.

Please show your support by signing the petition.  Thank you.
