HC Deb 21 March 1940 vol 358 c2119
62. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Postmaster-General whether the Post Office will take part in the exhibition which is being held by the Postal History Society, at Bournemouth, from 6th to 11th May, in aid of the Red Cross Fund, as an alternative to the International Exhibition?

Captain Waterhouse

My right hon. and gallant Friend has already promised to lend the British Government stamp exhibit for display at the centenary exhibition which is being arranged by the Royal Philatelic Society in aid of the Red Cross Fund and will be opened in London on 6th May, and regrets that the Post Office has no other items of rare philatelic interest which he could see his way to lend for display at the Bournemouth exhibition.
