Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 2nd November 1955.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Postmaster-General if he will consider issuing books of stamps to the total value of 10s. in addition to those already issued at lower values.
I doubt whether there would be a sufficient demand for 10s. books to justify the cost of production and stocking.
Would there not be a ready sale for these books, particularly among long-suffering Members of Parliament, who are always short of stamps?
The sales of 5s. books of stamps are a little more than one-third of those of 2s. 6d. books, and I do not really think that there is sufficient demand for 10s. books.
Mr. Glenvil Hall:
Apart from whether or not there is a demand, can the right hon. Gentleman tell us what the actual cost would be?
Not without notice.
