HC Deb 07 December 1965 vol 722 c90W
Mr. Mathew

asked the Postmaster-General if in future he will forbid advertising of any character on British postal stamps, including the name of the designers and printers.

Mr. Benn

No. The inclusion of these names adds to the interests of the stamps and helps our printers and designers to compete in the world market with their opposite numbers from other countries who have adopted a similar practice.
