§ 79. Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether the design of the British Empire Exhibition postage stamp was selected as the result of competition; and whether he can give the name of the successful artist?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; as regards the second part, the successful artist was Mr. Harold Nelson.
§ Mr. WILSON
Might I further ask whether the design for this stamp is considered really artistic, and whether the right hon. Gentleman is aware of any postal authority which has issued a stamp that is more ugly than this one?
