Responding to the publication of the Bateson review of research using non-human primates, Dr Vicky Robinson, Chief Executive of the NC3Rs, said: "Over the last six years we have worked with the funding bodies to improve the standards of research using non-human primates, primarily focusing on animal welfare. This report shows that there is much more to do, particularly in terms of reviewing the justification for using these animals on a case-by-case basis. It is important that the inevitable rhetoric from some sectors which will accompany the publication of this report does not take attention away from the serious matter of acting on the Panel's recommendations."
