asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider providing a cancellation post-mark which will call attention to the need for more recruits for the National Service campaign?

There are difficulties in the way of adopting the hon. Member's suggestion, but I will certainly give it careful consideration.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say on what occasion a similar cancellation has taken place?

We do it in certain cases, but these stamps go all over the world, and the hon. Member's question suggests that our National Service plan is not going well which is neither accurate nor a good thing to advertise.
