Background Briefing on Animal Research in the UK

In February we launched our US briefing. In April we launched our Canadian briefing. Now, we’re launching our UK background briefing on animal research (all of these can be found on the resources page). We hope this will offer journalists, editors, broadcasters and interested members of the public who may wish to discuss this issue, a handy overview of the facts. Our two-page summary provides key information including the number of animals used for research purposes, the laws and regulations surrounding animal research, and some key questions people have.
