HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2119
63. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Postmaster-General whether he now has any statement to make on the issue of a Franco-British stamp?

Captain Waterhouse

As a result of the discussions I have had with the French Minister of Transmissions, who came to this country for the purpose on Monday last, general agreement has been reached in regard to the issue of a joint Franco-British stamp. It is hoped that the issue may be made in the autumn.

Mr. Mander

Has any decision been come to as to the design? Is it proposed to make a new design, or to use an existing one, such as was used at the time of the King's visit to Paris?

Captain Waterhouse

It is proposed to issue a new design, but as all designs have to be approved by the King, the House will not expect me to say anything more about that.
