HC Deb 04 August 1898 vol 64 c102

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether, should need arise for a special penny stamp for Imperial purposes, he will consider the advisability of holding an open competition in order to secure a thoroughly suitable design?


It is not in contemplation to provide a special stamp for Imperial penny postage, as there is an existing stamp for the penny rate. If the need did arise for a special stamp, the best means of obtaining a suitable design would be carefully considered.
