§ Mr. HENNIKER HEATON
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the objections taken to the apearance and design of the British 1d. stamp, as compared with stamps of the same value issued by other nations, and to the fact that the paper it is printed on is cheap and poor; and whether he intends to take steps, without delay, to give the public an improved 1d. stamp?
§ Mr. SYDNEY BUXTON
Tastes differ. The penny stamp is printed on the same description of paper as the former issues with the Queen's head. There is no present intention of issuing a new penny stamp.
