Study into the use of non-human primates (NHP) in research - (Weatherall report)
"It was concluded that there is a strong scientific case for maintaining work on non-human primates for carefully selected research problems in many of the areas studied, at least for the foreseeable future. In some cases, however, despite the scientific questions posed being both valid and important, it was concluded that, because of the availability of other approaches, the argument for the use of non-human primates was not as strong. In all instances we emphasise the continued need for each case to be judged individually, according to a rigorous assessment of the welfare costs to animals involved, the potential scientific or medical benefit of the work and the availability of other approaches."
