FRAME meeting MPs at Westminster
FRAME staff and trustees will be among members of several animal welfare and science organisations taking part in the meeting of the Animal Welfare and Alternatives Group at the Home Office.
They will be discussing a variety of subjects including the new EU Directive on the Protection of Animals Used for Scientific Purposes.

Afterwards FRAME representatives will hold a private meeting with a number of MPs to discuss the future of the All Party Parliamentary FRAME Group (APPFG) within the current government.
The last APPFG was wound up before the General Election but it is intended to relaunch it now that the new Government has established itself.
The APPFG is a group for members of both Houses atWestminster and was formed to support FRAME's work and to encourage the Government to promote the use of non-animal procedures in the UK and elsewhere.
It was first registered in 1984, although it had been working unofficially for three years. The group was extremely influential during the build up and passage through Parliament of the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986.
