HC Deb 05 June 1939 vol 348 c58W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Postmaster-General whether the Ministry of Health was consulted before permitting the insertion in the books of postage stamps of the advertisement of a proprietary remedy for diseases of the bladder, kidney, prostate gland and rheumatism; and what sum is annually receivable by the Treasury in respect thereof?

Major Tryon

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, but the Ministry of Health is aware of the general policy of the Post Office regarding advertisements of proprietary remedies. It is not the practice to disclose particulars of individual receipts of this kind.
