Abstract: The thesis is an analysis of changing trends, both in the antivivisection movement and in the scientific community, with some commentary upon the impact of these changes upon government and the public. Part I deals with the historical basis of British legislation controlling animal experimentation and with current moves towards its reform while. Part II looks at the nature of animal experimentation and the search for alternatives. The work is not simply a history but those events and arguments relevant to a thorough understanding of the contemporary situation (for example, the Second Royal Commission 1906-1912) are considered in some detail. Some very recent information, much of which is drawn from unpublished sources, is included. The thesis concludes with a brief consideration of the moral status of animals.
