HC Deb 29 April 1982 vol 22 c317W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make it the practice for each year's annual return to show species, numbers, country of destination and the purpose of the experiments in which live animals exported for vivisection are used.

Mr. Raison

No. My right hon. Friend's statutory responsibilities extend only to experiments on living animals performed in Great Britain and we have no powers to collect information about animals exported for such purposes.
