RSPCA asks EC to publish new lab regs

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 2008:
chief executive Mark Watts on September 11, 2008
asked European Commission president José Manuel
Barroso to expedite publication of proposed
changes to the European Union rules governing
animal experimentation, now long overdue.
“We are repeatedly told that publication
of the proposals is imminent, only to find it
has been put back–and put back again,” said
RSPCA senior European campaign manager Peter
Craske. “Legislation needs to be debated fully,
but this debate seems to have gone on forever.”
EU nations use about 12 million animals
per year in experiments; Britain uses about
three million of the total.
