BUAV Chief Executive Michelle Thew spoke at the Labour Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference in Brighton on Monday evening.
At the well-attended meeting, Michelle launched a range of policy commitments for the 2015 G
eneral Election - clearly identified aims to begin the work of ending animal experiments.
The key pledge ideas presented by the BUAV - from ending experiments on cats and dogs to ending the secrecy surrounding animal experiments - provide six clear steps that could be taken by elected representatives to achieve real and immediate change for animals in laboratories.
Attending political party conferences and fringe meetings are great opportunities to showcase the work of the BUAV and promote some of our key current campaigns such as Broken Promises, Our Best Friends and Licensed to Kill.
We are asking MPs from all parties to sign EDM 442 which calls on the Government to uphold its pledge to reduce animal experiments, and also EDM 514 which calls for an end to the use of cats and dogs in research.
