§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he has taken to assure himself that experiments carried out by Professor Wilhelm Feldberg and his staff were in accordance with the project licence provided by the Home Office under section 5 of the Animal Scientific Procedures Act 1986.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
[holding answer 14 May 1990]: My right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary has been sent a report and an edited video recording concerned with, among other matters, alleged failures of Professor Feldberg's anaesthetic techniques. This material has been passed to the inspectorate and a report will also be prepared for the animal procedures committee. The licences held by Professor Feldberg and his assistant were revoked earlier at their request.
