[09 FEB 99] CHRISTINE ODDY PRESS RELEASE
Oddy Campaigns Against Animal Testing

There'll be no mystery about one Valentine Day's card which Euro MP Christine Oddy is sending this year.

For the Coventry and North Warwickshire MEP' s signature is firmly in place on the card which will soon be dropping through the letterbox of the European Commission.

But Ms Oddy hasn't fallen in love with the Brussels bureaucracy - her heart is pledged to the campaign for a complete ban on testing cosmetics on animals.

Her name will be on the 'Have a Heart for Animals: Ban Cosmetics in Europe' card which is being sent to the Commission by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection. The organisation is calling on the Commission to strengthen its policy on the issue by imposing a Europe-wide ban on both the testing of cosmetics on animals and prohibiting the marketing of products which have been manufactured following that process. The BUAV is also calling for the regulations on cosmetic labelling to be cleared up to discourage animal testing.

Ms Oddy said:

"When it comes to banning cosmetic testing on animals I wear my heart on my sleeve - on 14 February and every other day of the year. Parliament has already voted for a ban on selling these products and now the Commission should put this into force."
