I have appointed two new members to the Animal Procedures Committee. Mr. Graham Moore was appointed from 1 December 2002. He is a veterinarian, who recently retired from Pfizer UK where he was Director of Animal Welfare. Professor Dawn Oliver was appointed from 1 March 2003. She is a barrister and Professor of Constitutional Law at University College London. Each member has been appointed for a four-year term. I am grateful to both for accepting membership of this important committee.
