HC Deb 02 December 1926 vol 200 c1368
49. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the £1 and 10s. Treasury currency notes will be withdrawn and replaced by Bank of England notes?


No sir. I cannot add to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave on the 9th February last to a question on this subject by my hon. Friend the Member for the Streatham Division (Sir W. Lane Mitchell).

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say if there is any likelihood of the sovereign or the 10s. gold piece coming back?


Will it not be necessary to settle the fiduciary issue before the amalgamation?


I do not think there is any advantage at present in considering the matter, because, as my right hon. Friend said, probably it will be a long time before the matter is dealt with.
