That this House is proud of the UK’s leadership in ending animal testing for cosmetics; notes that the EU and several other countries have also ended this unnecessary practice; believes that it is now in the interests of animals, consumers and a fair platform for UK industry and international trade to end it around the world; understands that this could be achieved with an international convention that will end animal testing for all cosmetics products and ingredients worldwide; and calls on the Government to lead such an initiative by tabling, actively pursuing and supporting a resolution at the UN General Assembly to initiate this via an ad hoc committee as called for by UK-based Cruelty Free International.
