Spending on animal research for (human) medical use

Council of the European Union did not have the information requested.

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as
developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting a list of
documents which contain the following information:

Annual (or other breakdown) of the spending (monetary) on animal
research in biomedical research and development for the benefit of
clinical (human) medicine (pharmaceutical) in the UK and other EU

Yours faithfully,

Susan Green
