§ 18. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the Postmaster-General if he will honour the bi-centenary in January, 1959, of Robert Burns by the issue of a form of greetings telegram explicity designed to commemorate that event.
§ Mr. Marples
The future place of the telegraph service in our communications system is at present under review by the Advisory Committee whose appointment I announced last December. I expect their Report in a few weeks, and meantime I think that a decision on the hon. and learned Member's suggestion should be held over.
§ Mr. Hughes
Does that mean that there are some prospects of such a deferred greetings telegram being issued in the near future?
