25th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference
When the 25th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference opened in Wellington in November 1979, the New Zealand Post Office released a set of three stamps to commemorate the event.
Maria sent me this lovely FDC commemorating the 25th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference It was the third time New Zealand had played host to this conference, the previous occasions were in 1950 and 1965, and the second time New Zealand stamps had commemorated such an event.

Wall Hanging - 30c - Which dominates the foyer of the 'Beehive' Parliament Buildings.
