Dear University of Glasgow,

I am writing in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the disclosure of data held which concerns the use of animals at the University of Glasgow and related breeding at the site. The University of Glasgow is a Designated Scientific Procedure Establishment (“DSPE”) and Designated Breeding & Supply Establishment (“DBSE”), as defined by the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 (“ASPA”) and this request relates to activities within the scope of the legislation.

The information I am requesting is as follows:

1) By species, how many animals were used in research at the University of Glasgow in 2014? In the case of rodents, please list by genetic strain.
2) By species, how many animals were used in research at the University of Glasgow each year between 2000-2013?
3) By species, how many animals were bred for research at the University of Glasgow in years 2013 and 2014?
4) By species, how many animals were being kept for the month of February 2015 for experimentation and research purposes?
5) By species, how many animals were supplied to external facilities by the University of Glasgow in 2014?
6) What alternative methods are used in place of animal testing where using animals has been phased out?
7) What research and experimentation projects have animals been used for at the University of Glasgow in 2014?
8) By number of research project and/or experiments, how many projects were used with alternative methods in place of using animals, and how many were used using animals?
9) Copies of health reports for the University of Glasgow breeding colonies for 2014.
10) Copies of Home Office inspection reports, Nominated Animal Care & Welfare Officer (“NACWO”) reports and Named Veterinary Surgeon (“NVS”) recommendations for University of Glasgow in 2014.
11) What will the £5 million set aside for animal holding facilities in the University Estates Strategy be used for?

Please do not include information that identifies those under the employ of the institution or any third parties.

As The Act dictates that a response must be given within 20 days of receipt of this request, I request that if there is to be any delay to keep me informed.

Thank you for your assistance.

Yours Faithfully,
Michelle Mamane
