HC Deb 14 July 1965 vol 716 c76W
Mr. Bessell

asked the Postmaster-General if he will advance the date on which the special stamp issue commemorating the Battle of Britain will be issued, so that it may be used on letters sent overseas on 1st September, 1965.

Mr. Benn

No. The 13th September, which is the Monday of Battle of Britain Week, seems to me to be an appropriate date for the issue of these stamps.
