The confirmation received on 7 May 2019 that the election would proceed would therefore have had no impact on the decisions of ROs as to when to send out poll cards.</p><p>The Commission continues to provide guidance, support and challenge to Regional and Local ROs. It will report on the administration of the poll and the performance of ROs against the performance standards after the election.</p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p> </p><p>The increase in the number of guinea pigs used in scientific procedures during <br>2013 is largely due to a change from tissue (mainly blood) collection <br>post-mortem to collecting it ante-mortem. Collecting tissues post mortem is not <br>a regulated procedure and therefore is not reported in the statistics. <br><br>In real terms, the number of guinea pigs needed for the collection of a <br>specified volume of blood is fewer by the ante-mortem method than by the post- <br>mortem method previously used. The blood collection is carried out on <br>terminally anaesthetised guinea pigs, such that there is no actual additional <br>suffering for the individual animals, compared with the post mortem method. <br>Guinea pig blood and its components are used widely in biomedical research as <br>reagents for non-animal research methods. <br><br>The number of guinea pigs used by DSTL Porton Down cannot be given as Section <br>24 of the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 prevents the Home Office <br>from releasing statistics for individual establishments. It is a decision for <br>the Ministry of Defence to decide what information to release in regards to <br>animals used under their individual certificates.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
