asked the Postmaster-General if it is proposed to issue special postage stamps for or during the Festival of Britain year.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Yes, it is proposed to issue two special British postage stamps of the 2½d. and 3d. denominations to commemorate the Festival of Britain. The permanent 2s. 6d., 5s., 10s. and £1 British postage stamps are being redesigned and it is hoped to place the new designs on sale on the opening day of the Festival.
