HC Deb 26 February 1964 vol 690 c76W
44. Mr. Lipton

asked the Postmaster-General why he will not introduce self-adhesive postage stamps to replace the present gummed stamps.

Mr. Mawby

It would cost us a great deal more, and in any case the stamps, with their paper backing, would be unsuitable for sale through our existing patterns of stamp selling machines.
