HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c298W
Mr. Carmichael

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will publish the figures for the latest most convenient 12-month period showing the number of animals exported for laboratory experiments, the species of such animals and their countries of destination.

Mr. Parkinson

This information is not available; the Overseas Trade Statistics do not distinguish animals exported for use in laboratory experiments from those exported for other purposes.
