To ask the President of the Board of Trade what plans the Post Office has to issue a set of stamps to commemorate the Berlin Airlift. [47426]

Mr. Ian McCartney

The Post Office's stamp programme for 1999 has been designed to celebrate the Millennium: no special anniversaries will be commemorated. The Post Office recognises the importance of the Berlin Airlift anniversary and plans to issue a special commemorative label with associated philatelic products to honour the event. With the support of the Ministry of Defence, the Post Office is planning a high profile launch to maximise interest and publicity.
