HC Deb 26 November 1990 vol 181 c294W
Mr. Dunnachie

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action his Department's inspectors have taken to ensure that the provisions of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 are observed in the conduct of experiments on animals at the National Institute for Medical Research laboratories, Mill Hill, London; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

All establishments in Great Britain designated under the Act, including the National Institute for Medical Research at Mill Hill, are subject to visits, mainly without notice, by the animals (scientific procedures) inspectorate to ensure that the controls of the Act and the terms and conditions of licences issued under it are being observed.
