HC Deb 04 July 1918 vol 107 c1837
22. Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, considering the importance of putting a stop to the retention of German currency in East Africa, he will at once take steps for the calling in of the German rupee, and the substitution in its place of the British rupee minted in India, or whatever other British currency may be most suitable for the purpose?


I regret that I can add nothing to my replies to previous questions on this subject.

Colonel YATE

Is the German currency to go on circulating for ever?


I think my hon. and gallant Friend will find that the question is fully dealt with in my previous answer.
