End animal testing

1st August 2014

"End all animal testing", says minister in charge of animal experiments in the UK.

Lib Dem MP Norman Baker said he was trying to persuade the industry to accept the economic case for ending tests on animals and come up with an alternative.

Animal rights campaigners say the coalition have broken their promise to reduce the number of live animal experiments.

Speaking to the BBC News, Mr Baker said, "I am firmly of the belief it is not simply a moral issue but that we as a nation can get a strategic advantage from this - something that will be good for the economy".

Whilst he claimed the government are moving in the right direction a ban on animal testing is "not going to happen tomorrow".
