§ MR. DIXON-HARTLAND (Middlesex, Uxbridge)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Departmental Committee which in March 1885 was carefully considering the question of the great inconvenience caused in consequence of the postage stamps being all printed in one colour, has yet made its report; and, whether he is now prepared to prevent the loss to the Revenue which takes place, by returning to different colours for different denominations of stamps?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
The Committee to which the hon. Member refers has made its Report, and no time is being lost in the preparation of the new stamps. The importance of distinctiveness of colour has been carefully kept in view.
