  1. Given the track record of mistakes with these labels, the question that springs to mind is: that’s what they say, but what really will happen?

    1. That's why I particularly referred to the unofficial report from the IAR website because there was nothing on the RM P&G webpage. When Martyn Fry was production manager the arrangement was that IAR would not publish before RM. Since his retirement with a vacuum for a while, no replacement arrangement was put in place. Royal Mail have told us what we can order from Tallents House but have not actually said what they think might be on their stand at Stampex.
