HC Deb 06 July 1927 vol 208 c1278W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Postmaster-General if letters in this country containing the post stamp "Come to Britain" are subjected to a duty by any foreign Governments or Dominions of the British Empire as advertising literature; and the names of the Governments which have taken this action?


The words "Come to Britain" are not used as part of any official postmark. I cannot say whether a letter bearing those words would be charged duty abroad as advertising matter. If my hon. Friend has any information on the subject, I shall be glad if he will communicate it to me, so that I may make inquiry.
