§ MR. CHARLES ALLEN (Gloucestershire, Stroud)
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the scarcity of copper coins in country districts; and, if so, whether he will take steps to remedy the scarcity.
§ (Answered by Mr. Asquith.) I have no evidence that there exists a scarcity of bronze coins in any district. The demands for bronze have been very moderate in amount for the last three months, and the large issues of 1906 appear to have amply satisfied the requirements of the public.
