§ 57. Mr. Leonard
asked the Postmaster-General whether his Department has yet received, through the International Union or otherwise, a listing catalogue showing the new stamps of Greater Germany and, including as such, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Memel, and Danzig; and what was the date of issue of such catalogue?
§ The Postmaster-General (Major Tryon)
Information was contained in a circular letter dated 20th April, 1938, from the International Bureau of the Postal Union at Berne, regarding a stamp stated to have been issued by Germany on the occasion of the plebiscite of 10th April on the union of Austria and Germany; and in a further circular letter dated 22nd December, 1938, regarding two stamps stated to have been issued by Germany in commemoration of the in-corporation of Sudeten German territory. The notifications in each case were issued some time after the events to which the-stamps relate. No further information has been received.
§ Mr. Mander
Is there any foundation for the statement that Germany has issued stamps showing Danzig incorporated in the Reich?
§ Major Tryon
I have had no information whatever to that effect, but clearly that does not arise from the question.
§ Mr. Leonard
Will matters of this kind be taken into account as an indication of Germany's intentions in the future and be given recognition by the Government?
