HC Deb 20 February 1917 vol 90 cc1153-4
23. Mr. C. WASON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if arrange- ments could be made by which our troops in Salonika could be paid in French notes, and an order issued that such notes were a legal tender at par, the same as French silver?


The question of currency at Salonika is a complicated one, and is receiving full attention. I fear there would be serious difficulty in adopting my hon. Friend's suggestion, but he may rest assured that the interests of the troops are not being overlooked.
