§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will give the same postal facilities to the boot and shoe industry to advertise their manufactures by cancellation stamps as he has offered to the Lancashire cotton industry?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Advertisement of the British Industries Fair by postmark is an established practice; this year the scope of the fair has been enlarged by the inclusion of a new section on a very large scale, that of cotton textiles, and I have agreed that prominence shall be given to that fact in the postmark advertisement of the fair. Similar conditions do not apply to the boot and shoe industry.
