HC Deb 26 July 1968 vol 769 cc255-6W
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. Lomas

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will now announce his programme of postage stamps for 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.

October: Stamps showing Post Office history and activities. November: Christmas stamps.

Details of values and dates of issue will be announced later.
