HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 cc271-2W
120 and 121. Mr. Erroll

asked the Postmaster-General (1) what arrangements exist in his Department for approving slogans for use with postal franking machines; and in what circumstances is approval withheld;

(2) if he will publish a list of slogans for use in postal franking machines submitted to him during the past 12 months for which approval has been withheld; and the reasons why.

Mr. Hobson

Slogans of a controversial character are not accepted for inclusion in the impressions of postal franking machines because they are liable to be interpreted by members of the public as associating the Post Office with the slogan. The companies supplying the machines implement the policy in consultation with my Department. The following are the slogans which have been rejected by the Post Office during the past 12 monthsUnder free enterprise British Cement is the cheapest in the world. Join the Conservative Party. Vote Conservative. Taunton Conservative Party, Parade Rooms, Taunton. 'Just one more heave.' Free enterprise gives everyone a chance and a choice.
