Report No. 38
15. Sections 2(g) and surcharge on stamps.-
The following suggestion, regarding surcharge on stamps, was made by the Department in its comment on the draft Report1-
"This Department has had under consideration for some time a proposal for issue of stamps with surcharge.
The intention is to enable this Department to issue such stamps for collecting money for benevolent funds, such as children's fund, etc. There is at present difficulty in the issue of such stamps as the existing provisions of the Post Office Act do not permit such stamps being brought out. It is, therefore, suggested that sections 2(g) and 16 of the Act may be suitably amended to permit the issue of such stamps."
In our view, this is a matter of policy. We do not express an opinion in the matter.
