Advocates for Animals sent the Secretary of State a review of published research papers covering experiments carried out on dogs and cats in the UK from 1987 – 1992.

The report included details on licences for vivisection in the UK by region, and on infringements of the Act. It also stated the amount of procedures carried out in the previous year, noting that it was not the number of animals as some may have been re-used.

This was said to be the most extensive review of its type in the UK at the time.
