Scotland calls for ban on monkey testing

A Scottish MEP has called for a proposed ban on primate testing to be extended to include monkeys used in Scottish laboratories.

Labour MEP David Martin said Scotland runs proportionately more tests on primates than any country in the EU.

He said testing on monkeys was immoral when other options could be developed.

But scientists funded by the Medical Research Council said primates were only used when there was no alternative.
