HC Deb 12 March 1913 vol 50 cc247-8W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether any scheme has yet been produced for the expenditure of the sum of 1d. per head to be granted under the National Insurance Act for purposes of research; and, if so, whether such scheme provides, or will provide, that no part of such moneys shall be used for experiments on living animals?


The Report of the Astor Committee which deals with this subject of research has only just been issued and presented to Parliament. I have not as yet had opportunity adequately to consider its recommendations.
