§ Mr. Hugh Jenkins
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how frequently his inspectors visit Porton Down; and what experiments on animals take place there.
§ Dr. Summerskill
On average, 15 inspections per year are made to the Chemical Defence Establishment and the Microbiological Research Establishment, Porton Down. The programmes of research in connection with which live animals are used there are the responsibility of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence.
