Lobby your MP to sign EDM 74

EDM 74 progresses our campaign for an independent inquiry into the Home Office's failure to regulate Imutran's primate xenotransplantation research programme. The motion highlights the failure of the Ombudsman to properly investigate the Home Office. With the Home Office recently losing a court case brought in very similar circumstances, there is now even greater pressure on the Home Office and Ombudsman to atone for their callous neglect of animal welfare regulations.

Please ask your MP to sign EDM 74. You can lobby them directly at:

New Uncaged report exposes Home Office

Uncaged's new report on the Diaries of Despair scandal has uncovered yet more systematic misconduct on the part of the Home Office in its enforcement of animal research regulations.

The report is titled "In a collapsed state", a double reference: firstly to damning observations of dying monkeys following pig organ transplant experiments conducted by Imutran at HLS; and, secondly, to the regulatory system which is supposed to scrutinise vivisection proposals.
