HC Deb 06 May 1897 vol 48 cc1603-4

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) whether the London Hospital Medical School was registered under 39 and 40 Vic. cap. 77, in the years 1895 and 1896 for the performance of experiments on living animals; (2) whether the Government Inspector in his Report, dated the 5th of July, 1896, stated "that the names of all those 'licensed places' to which licenses were accredited are given in the tables"; and, (3) whether, having regard to the fact that the London Hospital has been omitted from the tables of the Government Inspector's Report for the year 1895, the Home Secretary will order an amended Report of the Experiments on Living Animals to be issued which shall be accurate?


The answer to the two first paragraphs is in the affirmative. There has been no inaccuracy, however, in the return. The hon. Member will find the London Hospital mentioned in the foot notes to Table 1, on pages 13 and 15. I must certainly decline to issue an amended table; but to meet what I imagine are the hon. Member's wishes, I have directed that in future returns all registered premises shall appear in the body of the table, whether any experiments are performed in them or not.
