HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 cc23-4W
76. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for War for what purposes the scientists employed by his Department applied for licences for experiments on animals last year and what animals were used.

Mr. Head

The only licence for which my Department applied last year was needed at the Royal Army Medical College, Millbank, in connection with the usual medical work of investigation and diagnosis of disease. The animals used were rabbits, guinea pigs and mice.
