Abstract

MAY I announce through the columns of NATURE the formation of a “Plumage Bill Group”, designed to fight the plumage trade by means of publicity to the facts and of pressure upon the Government to bring in a Bill forbidding the importation of all birds' skins for millinery purposes, except poultry, ostrich, and eider-duck? Sir Charles Hobhouse is the president of this group; Lt.-Col. Swinburne, of 23 Eaton Place, S.W.1, its treasurer; and Mr. W. Dewar, of 8 Kenilworth Court, Putney, S.W.15, its hon. secretary. The group is in need both of funds and of assistance, and the former will be very gratefully received by the treasurer, and the latter as gratefully considered by the secretary and the committee.
