|Copy letter from John William Strutt, Lord Rayleigh, to Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
|6 April 1906
|Strutt presents to the Prime Minister the resolution of the Council of the Royal Society, passed at their meeting the previous day. In response to news that the Government are considering an enquiry into experiments upon animals, the Society urge that such an enquiry be as comprehensive as possible and take the form of a Royal Commission with the power to take evidence, citing the gap of 30 years since such a commission reported on the subject.
