§ Mr. MANDER
asked the Postmaster-General whether the opinion of the Royal Fine Arts Commission was obtained before the design of the new postage stamps was approved, in view of the fact that this was created as an advisory body on all matters of an artistic nature?
§ Major TRYON
No, Sir. It has not been the practice to consult the Commission in regard to the design of postage stamps, which involves technical as well as artistic considerations. I am, however, reviewing the position.
