Rennie A & Buchanan-Smith HM (2005) Report on the Extent and Character of Primate Use in Scientific Procedures across Europe in 2001. Laboratory Primate Newsletter, 44 (2), pp. 6-12. http://www.brown.edu/Research/Primate/lpn44-2.html#europe
First paragraph: In this report we present and discuss statistical data available from those European countries that use non-human primates (henceforth "primates") in research. Primate-user countries in the European Union include Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the U.K.; all are included in the analysis as far as possible. We also consider primate-use statistics for Switzerland, a country which, although not a member of the European Union and not subject to the provisions of European Directive 86/609/EEC (European Union, 1986), has used a number of primates in research in the past and has published statistical data regarding its use of animals in scientific procedures in 2001.
