The severity of neurological experiments on monkeys

On the Today programme this morning the issue of experiments on animals was discussed, and Dr Jarrod Bailey told us "the severity of neurological experiments on monkeys has been routinely underestimated."

The solution would be to require live broadcasting (available on the web) of all experiments on animals as a condition of the licences for such experiments.

One can say with a fair degree of certainty that the experiments would then come under immediate democratic scrutiny and control.

The same requirement of live broadcasts could be applied to abbatoirs - an area which has a dubious record in humane treatment of animals.
