HC Deb 19 November 1996 vol 285 c503W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he will publish the Animal Welfare Advisory Committee's report on its first visit to the protection and life sciences division, Potion Down. [3966]

Mr. Arbuthnot

The Animal Welfare Advisory Committee, which was set up in July this year, has now visited all the establishments in the Department which conduct experiments involving animals. The committee intends to submit a report to my Department's chief scientific adviser next month and I would expect publication early in the new year.
