HC Deb 07 February 1973 vol 850 cc97-8W
Mr. Judd

asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications what is his policy on the introduction of a charity stamps system; what representations the Government have received from charities on this system; what replies he has sent and whether he will make a statement.

Sir J. Eden

In reaching this decision the Post Office took account among other things of Government advice on matters proper to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department. I have replied in these terms to the six people, including five hon. Members, who have written to me about this subject.
