HC Deb 19 July 1994 vol 247 c154W
Mr. Page

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what advice he has received from the Animal Procedures Committee in respect of regulatory toxicity; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Charles Wardle

My right hon. and learned Friend has received the Committee's report on this subject, which was based on the work of the sub-committee chaired by Dr. Onora O'Neill, principal of Newnham college, Cambridge. I am grateful to Dr. O'Neill and the other members of the sub-committee for the efforts that they have put in to this difficult and important subject. The Home Office will be consulting with regulatory and other interested bodies about the committee's recommendations. Copies of the report have been placed in the Library.

Additional copies of the report can be obtained from the Home Office Publications Unit, Room 1024, 50 Queen Anne's Gate, London SW 1 H 9AT (£2.00 plus postage and packing).
