§ 79. Sir R. Glyn
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that the current report of the Scottish Anti-Vivisection Society, a copy of which has been sent to him, includes a picture entitled Scottish Vivisection Experiments on Dogs, which shows a simultaneous experiment being carried out on a number of dogs; whether he is satisfied that this multiple experiment was necessary, and that no cruelty was involved; and if he will make a statement.
§ Sir F. Soskice
This picture is a copy of a photograph published in 1932 in a medical journal as part of a report on experiments. The report, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member for information, shows that the experiments were for a purpose allowed by the Cruelty to Animals Act, 1876. At this date it is not possible to say what pain, if any, was caused to the animals.
