Government statistics released in 2020 reveal that 54% of all animal experiments in Great Britain (Northern Ireland figures are separate) were conducted at universities or medical schools. Historically, the Home Office would show the percentage of animal experiments carried out at universities annually, which was a useful tool in understanding the impact that university procedures have on the number of animals harmed in experiments in Great Britain. However, the most recently released statistics, which were for 2021, omitted this information. This is a step backwards in terms of transparency, which is obviously of great concern.
