UK - Early Day Motion to ban all primate experimentation has 86 signatures (approx. 13% of the MPs in the House of Commons)
PRIMATE EXPERIMENTS 03.06.03
That this House believes that experiments on primates cannot be justified in view of the important biological differences between people and primates and their well-developed intellectual and social awareness, which makes their needs impossible to meet in a laboratory and their suffering so severe; notes public opposition to the practice; therefore believes it is time for the UK to adopt the Zero Option, a total end to experiments on all primates; and calls upon the Government to extend the ban on the use of great apes to all primates as a matter of urgency.
