Dear Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency,

To whom it may concern,

I write in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 ("The
Act") to request the disclosure of data held which concerns the use of
animals in research by Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) ("The Public Authority").

For the avoidance of doubt the term 'animal research' is defined as
regulated procedures governed by the Animal (Scientific Procedures)
Act
1986 ("ASPA") and EU Directive 2010/63/EU ("The EU Directive").

The information I wish to request is as follows:

1. By species: How many animals were used in research by "The Public
Authority" from January 1st 2017 to December 31st 2017?

2. Minutes, reports and correspondence of any Animal Welfare & Ethical
Review Board ("AWERB"), formerly known as the Ethical Review Committee
("ERC"), or sub-committee at university level, including but not
limited to departmental committees, from 2017, where these relate to
experimentation or other work involving captive live animals, in
addition to any guidance issued by these committees at any time if
currently in use. For the avoidance of doubt the term 'committee' is
used in broad definition and is inclusive of boards, groups or
similarly natured structural enterprises.

I must stress that I do not seek data which identifies those under the
institution's employ and agree for such information to be redacted
within reason.

Yours sincerely

Eithne Gallagher
Campaigns Officer

Yours faithfully,

Eithne Gallagher
