HC Deb 03 August 1971 vol 822 c276W
Mr. Latham

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry in how many establishments for which he is responsible are animals used for purposes of experimentation and research; and how many animals were used in those establishments for such purposes in 1970.

Mr. David Price

Only one of the establishments in this Department, the Torry Research Station, carries out experiments on animals. In 1970 the Station used about 1,300 animals of which 95 per cent. were mice. Experiments were also carried out on some 20 fish.
