HC Deb 08 February 1956 vol 548 cc189-90W
104. Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider, in due course, the issue of stamps to mark the holding of the Empire Games in Wales in 1958, both as a means of raising revenue and of advertising the event.

Dr. Hill

The policy of the Post Office, since stamps were first introduced, has been to limit very strictly the issue of commemorative stamps, and this policy is supported by a substantial body of philatelic opinion. While I am always prepared to examine any particular proposals carefully, I consider that there are strong arguments for maintaining our present policy.
