HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1775

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that advertisements are inserted in the 2s. stamp books, but the purchaser only gets stamps to the value of 1s. 11½d., he will state whether he will now undertake to give the purchaser in future full value for his 2s.?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

The revenue from advertisements at present defrays only a small part of the cost of issuing the stamps in book form, but the matter is receiving special consideration.


Do I understand from the right hon. Gentleman that if the receipts from the advertisements enable it, in a reasonable time, to be done, full value will be given?


That, I am afraid, is a hypothetical question. If the hon. Gentleman will assist me to obtain remunerative advertisers I shall be grateful.
