HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 cc61-2W
103. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty for what purposes the scientists employed by his Department applied for licences for experiments on animals last year; and what animals were used.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

Licences were applied for by Admiralty scientists in 1951 for naval experiments. It would not be in the public interest to give further information.
