Mark Field MP Cities of London and Westminster. 2007 March 14:
As you will recall we were in correspondence regarding the display of the charity Songbird Survival leaflets in libraries in the City of London.
Following my letter on your behalf to David Bradbury, Director of Libraries.
I have now received the enclosed response which as you will see sets out the City’s Policy with regard to the display of leaflets.
As you will see the Council does not think it appropriate for the material they display to be advocating a particular viewpoint or campaign.
I hope you can understand the sense of this policy.
‘Many impressionable children use the library facilities and it would be inappropriate for them to be subjective to politically sensitive information.’
I am sorry that I am not able to be of more assistance in getting the decision to remove your leaflets overturned, but you will appreciate that my jurisdiction is limited in this area. I have no doubt that you will find plenty of other locations in which to put your leaflets.
Thank you for having taken the time and trouble to write, and please do feel free to keep me up-to-date with the campaigns progress.

“Subjective to politically ‘sensitive’ information?” Stone the crows…! So ‘Who’ – Has made this jargon up to denegrate this charity?

Bullfinches are fantastic chubby-looking little fellows.

Letters criticising the RSPB and Government departments about the magpie controversy do not go far enough. In the eighties, the then Department of the Environment negligently allowed the European negligently allowed the European Commission to put magpies on the list of protected species of birds.
Although this since has been relaxed.
This was particularly galling in view of the permitted massacre of migrating birds in Italy and other Mediterranean countries. The RSPB is naive to say that magpies have only increased by 100% in the last 30 years. If the comparison is made with the thirties the increase is many thousand per cent.
‘At that time magpies were a rarity and even in the country many people had never seen one.’ The relative rarity was said to be due to the efforts of gamekeepers who knew very well about the egg stealing habits of magpies and so rightly thankfully regarded them as a pest.
