Lobby your MP to sign EDM 74
EDM 74 progresses our campaign for an independent inquiry into
the Home Office's failure to regulate Imutran's primate xenotransplantation
research programme. The motion highlights the failure of the Ombudsman
to properly investigate the Home Office. With the Home Office recently
losing a court case brought in very similar circumstances, there
is now even greater pressure on the Home Office and Ombudsman to
atone for their callous neglect of animal welfare regulations.
Please ask your MP to sign EDM 74. You can lobby them directly

New Uncaged report exposes Home Office
Uncaged's new report on the Diaries of Despair scandal has uncovered
yet more systematic misconduct on the part of the Home Office in
its enforcement of animal research regulations.
The report is titled "In
a collapsed state", a double reference: firstly to
damning observations of dying monkeys following pig organ transplant
experiments conducted by Imutran at HLS; and, secondly, to
the regulatory system which is supposed to scrutinise vivisection
proposals. Click here to read on...
