HC Deb 27 February 1891 vol 350 c1847

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will state his intentions in respect to changes as to existing issues of bank notes this Session?


The hon. Member will have observed that in my recent utterances with regard to banking matters I made no special reference to the existing issues of bank notes by banks other than the Bank of England, but I can make no reply to my hon. Friend which will in any way fetter the freedom of action of the Government or of the House.
