HC Deb 14 December 1926 vol 200 c2769
47. Sir C. OMAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it is intended that any of the trial pieces for a new silver Colnage, which were prepared last summer, will be put into circulation as accepted monetary types during the year 1927?


I cannot add at present to the reply given by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy) on the 2nd August last.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I asked this question last summer? Has nothing further been done?


My hon. Friend is the last person in the House, am sure, who would suggest that questions so intricate, and interesting, and delicate as those connected with the designs on Colnage should be in any way oppressed by hurry.
