This is a reduction of 11% over the figure for 2012. The change in the number of procedures carried out in this category, in any particular year, depends on many factors. These factors include: investment in fundamental biological research; strategic decisions taken by funding bodies; global economic trends; scientific innovation; and, the development and uptake of validated alternative technologies.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The information asked for is not held centrally and could only be obtained at <br>disproportionate cost.<br><br>The Government only authorises procedures on animals after rigorous checks. <br>Under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 there is a statutory <br>requirement for scrutiny by, in the first instance, the Animal Welfare Ethical <br>Review Body at the Establishment where the work will be performed, and then an <br>assessment is made by the Home Office Inspectorate. In addition, projects are <br>referred to the Animals in Science Committee for scrutiny where they propose <br>the use of non-human primates in severe protocols and other projects that ministers <br>consider require further consideration. <br><br>One of the key factors in the assessment of licence applications is the <br>harm-benefit analysis, which has been part of our assessment process since <br>1986. The parameters considered in this analysis are described in Appendix I of <br>the Operational Guidance to the 1986 Act. A harm-benefit analysis determines <br>whether the proposed harms to the animals are justified by the likely benefits to be <br>delivered from the project. Inspectors give advice on minimising harms during <br>their assessment of project licence applications. Licensees have a legal <br>responsibility to ensure that work is undertaken on animals in the least severe <br>manner possible whilst delivering their scientific objectives. This year we <br>are undertaking a review of the harm-benefit analysis process, with advice from <br>the Animals in Science Committee, to determine if there are further refinements <br>we can make to the process.<br><br>I am committed to working to reduce the number of animals used in scientific <br>procedures. The Coalition Commitment delivery plan &quot;Working to reduce the use <br>of animals in research&quot; was published in February 2014. In particular, the Home <br>Office Inspectorate is working with the Royal Society for the Prevention of <br>Cruelty to Animals on methods of refinement of the most severe models to avoid <br>or reduce animal suffering. This has included careful consideration of models <br>of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, seizures, rheumatoid arthritis <br>and sepsis. Inspectors are actively promulgating the recommendations from each <br>of these reports.<br><br>In addition, the Home Office has published advisory notes on recording and <br>reporting actual severity, as required by the transposed European Directive <br>from 2013. From data collected we will provide clarity on the burden of harm <br>and, over time, should give an indication of the effectiveness of refinement <br>methods, particularly for the most severe procedures.<br><br>It is imporant to note that procedures classified as severe represent only a <br>small percentage of total procedures.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>In my answer in the House on 17 June I spoke about the key factors that the Government will consider in coming to a policy decision on resettlement of the Territory – value for the UK taxpayer, long-term contingent liabilities, and defence requirements of Diego Garcia to the UK and our allies. This consideration will clearly be driven by the report on the feasibility of resettlement by the independent consultants, which will provide us with a factual analysis of the practicalities that any resettlement might involve, including the economic sustainability of a resettled population, and its environmental impact, and of course the views of Chagossians themselves about what they want to see from our policy. We look forward to the final report which is expected by January 2015.</p> more like this
