Whether they will review the agency status of the Defence Animal Centre (DAC). [HL164]

Lord Gilbert

A review of the agency status of the Defence Animal Centre (DAC) has begun. The performance of the DAC has been evaluated and its activities will shortly be subjected to the normal prior options tests. Comments and contributions from those with an interest in the work of the agency would be welcome and should be sent by 31 January 1998 to Major General W. R. Short, Director General Army Medical Services (DGAMS), Building 21, Keogh Barracks, Ash Vale, Aldershot, Hampshire GU12 5RR.

Prospective contributors to the agency review should note that the DAC is proceeding with a PH project to rebuild its accommodation and provide associated support services.
