Delivered to the House of Lords, 1957

 “I firmly believe that painful experiments on animals are morally wrong, and that it is basically immoral to do eveil in order that good may come – even if it were proved that mankin benefits from the suffering inflicted on animals. I further believe that, in the vast majority of cases, mankind does not so benefit, and the results of vivisection are, in fact, misleading and harmful.”
