§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Postmaster-General at what offices the British Empire Exhibition stamp can be purchased; why post offices all over England do not sell these special stamps; and, in view of the practice in other countries when a special stamp of this nature is introduced and of the large sum of money guaranteed by the British Parliament, will he consider the desirability of pushing the sale of these stamps so as to popularise the idea of the exhibition?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
The special stamps are on sale at the British Empire Exhibition post offices. I understand that the authorities of the exhibition do not share the view that the sale of the special exhibition stamps at all post offices is desirable in order to advertise the exhibition, and prefer to restrict the sale to the exhibition itself.
