The revision of the EU Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes - European Union Committee Contents

Memorandum by The Open University

  I am submitting an institutional response on behalf of The Open University to the above "call for evidence" from the House of Lords European Union Committee, Sub-Committee D (Environment and Agriculture) dated 23 April 2009.

  The Open University wholeheartedly supports the collective response document from the Bioscience Sector submitted by Dr Simon Festing as it addresses all the key points and provides evidence for or against each. It also represents the views of a number of organisations from academia, industry, small to medium enterprise businesses, charities and other research funders in the UK all of which will be directly affected by the revision of the Directive.
