HC Deb 20 March 1962 vol 656 c21W
30. Mr. Brockway

asked the Postmaster-General if he will now consider the publication of pictorial stamps for ordinary use in the United Kingdom.

Miss Pike

The high value stamps which are in ordinary use in this country, and the stamp on the 6d. air letter form, already include pictures. Pictorial designs are also used in some of our special issues. The permanent series low value stamps are, for general convenience, produced in a size which does not permit the satisfactory combination of a pictorial design with a dominant portrait of the Queen.
