How to enter

The UK Government has recently published a document explaining how it intends to deliver on its commitment to replace, reduce and refine the use of animals in research. Which elements of this plan do you think will have the most impact and why? What further actions could the UK Government take to replace, reduce and refine the use of animal in research?
