Was this November 2011?
I would have thought that there would have been an issue on the 1st April.

Hmmm... Well regarding the 25 April 2013 Postage Due labels - 22 values ranging from 1p to £25...
The return of the “To Pay” labels in the United Kingdom? Surely this must be a mistake of grandiose wishful thinking!
Also, I only count five prestige books.
