HC Deb 07 May 1958 vol 587 c1206
26. Sir H. Lucas-Tooth

asked the Postmaster-General if he will now state what new denominations of stamps he proposes to issue and what existing denominations he proposes to discontinue, and when.

Mr. K. Thompson

The only new denomination I have at present in mind to issue is the 4½d. stamp, which I mentioned in reply to my hon. Friend's Question on 4th December. I expect this stamp to be available in the autumn. I am considering whether any more new denominations are needed, and which of the existing denominations might be discontinued, but my inquiries are not yet complete. I will make an announcement about this as soon as I can.

Mr. Hector Hughes

In considering the revision of denominations and new denominations, will the hon. Gentleman also consider the issue of a Burns stamp?

Mr. Thompson

That matter is constantly before us.
