HC Deb 07 July 1965 vol 715 c248W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Postmaster-General why the threepenny stamp with the St. Andrew's Cross does not contain the word Scotland or some other indication that it is a Scottish stamp; why the Forth Bridge stamp is no longer on sale in all the post offices of Aberdeen; and if he will take steps to rectify these omissions.

Mr. Joseph Slater

My right hon. Friend thinks the St. Andrew's Cross, along with the Crowned Thistle which also appears on this stamp, are generally accepted as identifying the stamp with Scotland.

He is sorry that because of a local error some post offices in Aberdeen were at one time without stocks of Forth Road Bridge stamps. This was put right.
