ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION: GOOD, BAD OR NECESSARY EVIL?

What is the future for animal experiments in the UK?


What is the future for animal experiments in the UK? The official approach argues both for their scientific necessity and also their regulation in the name of animal welfare. Is this a helpful compromise or a moral fudge? Colin Blakemore of the Medical Research Council, Tony Gilland of the Institute of Ideas, Richard Ryder author of Painism: a Modern Morality and David Thomas, Chair of the RSPCA join Timandra Harkness to discuss the issue.
