HC Deb 07 March 1927 vol 203 c864W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies why Palestinian postage stamps bear an Egyptian inscription instead of the head of King George?


At present Palestine uses the Egyptian Expeditionary Force issue of postage stamps, surcharged "Palestine" in English, Arabic and Hebrew. New postage stamps will be introduced this year with the new Palestine currency, and will bear pictorial representations of buildings and other objects in Palestine which are of historical interest.
