HC Deb 24 October 1956 vol 558 c621
20. Mr. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in those Colonial Territories in which at present there are no specific regulations limiting the practice of experiments on living animals to persons licensed to perform them, he will take steps to secure the introduction of such regulations at an early date.

The Secretary of State for the Colonies (Mr. Alan Lennox-Boyd)

In all the territories referred to there is legislation designed to prevent unnecessary cruelty to animals, and in all the territories where experiments are performed regularly they are subject to official control. Nevertheless, where specific regulations on this matter do not already exist, I propose to invite colonial Governments to give further consideration to introducing such regulations.
