§ Mr. C. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Committee appointed by him to inquire into the present control of experiments on living animals held its first meeting; how many meetings have been held since; and when he expects to receive the Committee's recommendations on any changes that are desirable in the law or its administration.
§ Mr. Woodhouse
The Committee on Experiments on Animals was appointed on 24th May, 1963, and held its first meeting on 25th June. It has held 19 meetings since then and has made a number of visits to experimental laboratories. It hopes to be in a position to submit its report by the end of this year.
