That this House congratulates those passenger airlines that have dissociated themselves from the cruelty of the international trade in primates for research; welcomes the campaign by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection to highlight the key role airlines play in transporting thousands of primates around the world each year from such countries as Mauritius, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia and Barbados for laboratories in the UK, elsewhere in Europe, USA and Japan; notes that the primates are ripped from their family and social groups, packed into small wooden crates and travel as cargo, predominantly on passenger flights; can be subject to delays, poor ventilation, noise, and temperature fluctuations and may suffer illness and even death in transit; and urges the Government to call on other airlines to join British Airways, British Midland, United Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, Northwest Airlines, Qantas, South African Airways, Delta Airlines, Eva Air, China Airlines and many others in refusing to conduct this trade.
