§ 48. Sir CHARLES OMAN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take measures to withdraw gradually from circulation the more discoloured and faulty half-crowns and florins of 1922 to 1924, 1101 that a less-tarnishing amalgam seems to have been discovered for the recent issues from the Mint?
I would remind my hon. Friend of the arrangements already in force under which worn or defective coin an be exchanged for good coin on presentation at the Mint.
§ Sir C. OMAN
May we take it for granted that specially bad issues like those of 1922 to 1924 will be withdrawn early?
If my hon. Friend presents these discoloured coins at the Mint he will get them exchanged.
§ Mr. THURTLE
Is not the complaint of the public not of the discolouration of these half-crowns but of the scarcity of them?
