Campaign reply - “Please sign EDM 291 calling for a ban on warfare experiments on animals”.
A few constituents have written to me with a campaign email entitled “Please sign EDM 291 calling for a ban on warfare experiments on animals”.
As a principle I never sign early day motions as they very rarely achieve anything whilst at the same time running up costs to the taxpayer.
I am not in a position to verify the claims made by Animal Aid however that is not to say I do not have considerable concern with the matters raised. As such I will be taking up these matters with ministers and their officials when I see them.
