HC Deb 07 February 1985 vol 72 c653W
Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what regulations and requirements he has issued to laboratory animal breeders; and if he has any further plans for regulation and control of their activities.

Mr. Mellor

My right hon. and learned Friend has at present no power to issue any such regulations or requirements. His plans for controlling the breeding of laboratory animals were set out in the White Paper "Scientific Procedures on Living Animals" (Cmnd. 8883). Legislation to enact the White Paper proposals will be introduced as soon as parliamentary time permits.
