69. Mr. V. ADAMS
asked the Postmaster-General whether he has any statement to make with regard to a new issue of postage stamps?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir Walter Womersley)
I am sorry that I am unable at present to make a definite statement on the matter. The preparation of a suitable type of stamp is, of course, receiving careful consideration.
Will my hon. Friend see that the designs of any future issues are worthier of this country than were some former issues?
§ Sir W. WOMERSLEY
I can assure the hon. Member that artistic and all other considerations will be taken into account.
§ Mr. EMMOTT
Before the issue is made, will the hon. Gentleman make representations to the printers to improve the quality of the gum employed?
