Abstract

Though there are doubts about the appropriateness of applying the pluralist label in the case of British farm animal welfare policy making, these doubts become less pronounced if we turn our attention to decision-making relating to animal research in Britain. Although it would be absurd to overlook both the influence of the animal research lobby and the inadequacies of the present legislative and administrative framework designed to protect animals used for research, it would be equally inaccurate to deny the genuineness of the governmental response to public concern and the importance of the role played by a section of the animal protection movement in bringing about legislative reform.
