HC Deb 28 April 1925 vol 183 c18
26. Mr. HANNON

asked the Postmaster-General whether any arrangements have been made for the sale of the special British Empire Exhibition stamps at all past offices throughout the country; and, if not, whether he will consider the desirability of adopting this method of publicity, which has proved so successful in other countries?


I have considered this matter, but I find that the cost of production of the special stamps is approximately 12 times that of an ordinary stamp, and the expense of a general distribution would therefore be prohibitive. The arrangements will accordingly be the same as last year. The stamps will be of the same design, with the necessary alteration of date, and of the same denominations.
