My Lord, Ladies and Gentlemen, “Good intentions and wishful thinking are never enough when one is faced with natural problems. Knowledge and yet more knowledge is needed”. With these words, Sir Harold Himsworth, then Secretary of the Medical Research Council, introduced the second edition of The UFAW Handbook on the Care and Management of Laboratory Animals in 1957.
