HC Deb 31 July 1939 vol 350 c1965W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Postmaster-General what type of advertisements are by departmental rule or custom admitted in stamp books; and whether advertisements of wines, beer and spirits, religious bodies, political parties, literature, slogans and pool and betting agency advertisements, are excluded by rule?

Major Tryon

The contract forbids acceptance of advertisements which relate to alcoholic liquors, lotteries, betting or gaming, or any illegal or immoral business or matter, or advertisements which are regarded as contrary to public policy. In interpreting this clause, advertisements of wines, beer and spirits, political parties, "pools" and betting agencies are definitely excluded; but slogans and advertisements of religious bodies and literature would be dealt with on the circumstances of each case.
