HC Deb 23 November 1979 vol 974 c365W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Lord Privy Seal when he anticipates the European convention on the protection of animals used for experimental purposes will be signed and ratified.

Mr. Raison

I have been asked to reply.

Discussions on the draft convention are continuing and good progress has been made. But it is too soon to say when a final version will be available for signature.
