§ MR. BEAMISH
said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Report of the Royal Commissioners on Decimal Currency, who were appointed in 1855, may be expected to be laid on the table?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, he regretted that the Report of the Commissioners had not yet been laid on the table. Indeed, he could not help expressing his surprise, as well as his regret, that it had been so long delayed. The Commisioners were Lord Monteagle, Mr. Hubbard, and Lord Overstone. Having seen Lord Overstone, he knew that his Report was ready. He hoped that fact would induce the other Commissioners to hasten theirs, so that a measure on the subject might be introduced as early as possible.
