HC Deb 19 March 1958 vol 584 cc133-4W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Postmaster-General to what extent the advisory committee set up to advise him about new issues of postage stamps, greeting telegraphs and other matters relating to posts and telegrams will consider problems of design and format; if he will state its precise terms of reference; and when it is likely to report.

Mr. K. Thompson

There is no Advisory Committee to advise my right hon. Friend what new issues of postage stamps should be made.

The Advisory Committee on the Inland Telegraph Service is hoping to be able to report within the next six weeks. Its terms of reference are: To advise the Postmaster-General on the future place of the inland public telegraph service as part of the communication facilities of the United Kingdom.
