Dear Lancaster University,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the information to which I am entitled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I request to know the information for the year 2020 (01/01/2020 to 31/12/2020).

Did your university conduct experiments on animals in the year 2020?

If yes to the above question, how many animals were held on the premises for research purposes.

What species of animal were used?

How many of each species of animal were used in experiments?

What are the Home Office licence classification for these experiments in terms of pain, lasting harm, etc. if classified?

Were the animals used for medical or non medical research?

Which departments of your university were or are engaged in such research?

How many animals, held on the premises, were killed without being used for experiments?

If any of this information is already in the public domain, please can you direct me to it, with page references and URLs if necessary.

I understand that you are required to respond to my request within the 20 working days after you receive this letter. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Wendy Park

Dear Wendy,

 

Many thanks for submitting a Freedom Of Information request.

 

Due to the University focussing its resources towards our response to the
current pandemic, there may be possibilities of some delays to requests,
and in most cases we are unable to meet the 20 day timescale. The ICO have
released some guidance for applicants which explains that they will not be
taking regulatory action against organisations who cannot meet the
statutory timescales linked to both FOI requests and information rights
requests made under the GDPR, during the current public health crisis.

Please be assured that we fully intend to respond to all requests but we
hope you can understand that the University has more pressing priorities
at this difficult time.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused

 

Best wishes,

 

The Information Governance Team

Lancaster University
