Wouldn't a Humane group know? Or PETA? You could also ask local legislators and government officials.

I don't know that law here in NYC, let alone the UK.

Thanks for the suggestion, i remembered that my local University has a Biological Science's department and i called them for information so im OK now

It wasn't the sort of question that people would have been able to answer, so it's usually best to ask those that know best i guess

Glad you found your answer. It clearly is an esoteric legal question. . . and what did you find out??

I know here, the regulations aren't that strict. My Ex's mom used to work in a lab and she said that they would house 10-12 mice in a cage that was like 7 inches tall, and about 10 inches long. But that was cut in half because they would put a metal thing in the top that would hold food and water.
