UK releases report on animals in research


The UK government has reaffirmed its commitment to decreasing the use of animals in research but has refused to cap the number of animals used. “Britain is a world leader in science and it has also got a great tradition of concern about the welfare of animals,” the minister for universities and science, David Willetts said at a press conference releasing his policy. “What we do in this document is bring these two great traditions together in our delivery plan.”
