HC Deb 26 February 1940 vol 357 cc1719-20
7. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has now come to any decision as to the issue of a joint Anglo-French postage stamp, as illustrating the unity of the two countries in the struggle against aggression?

Major Tryon

As I stated on 31st January in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander), arrangements have been made to issue a special series of stamps in May next to commemorate the centenary of the first adhesive postage stamp, and in the circumstances I am unable to consider the issue of another special stamp at the present time. I am, however, in communication with the French Minister of Posts, Telegraphs and Telephones regarding the possibility of issuing an Anglo-French stamp later in the year.
