Please provide the following information:

4. What is the process followed for deceased animals?
5. What new insight is gained by repeating the Forced swim test?
6. How many VUW students refuse to perform the swim test?
7.How much does it cost to perform the test per semester?
8.Specifically what other animals are tested on at VUW for?
9. Which departments allow the testing?
10. Does the Ethics committee hold regular reviews to incorporate public perception of vivisection?
12. How much does it cost to perform each forced swim test?
