§ Sir Ian Orr-Ewing
asked the Postmaster-General if he has now approved the programme of postage stamps for 1969; and if he will state the occasions for which stamps will be released, as well as their values, in 1969.
§ Mr. Stonehouse
I have decided on the following general programme of special stamps in 1969:
January: A pictorial issue on British ships.
April: Stamps to mark notable anniversaries.
May: A pictorial issue on British architecture. This is the first of what we intend to be an annual series continuing for a number of years and illustrating architecture typical of various parts of Britain at various periods.
July: An issue to celebrate the investiture of the Prince of Wales.256W
October: Stamps showing Post Office history and activities. November: Christmas stamps.
Details of values and dates of issue will be announced later.
