§ 47. Sir CHARLES OMAN
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will direct a larger supply of 5s. pieces to he sent from the Royal Mint to the Bank of England, where applicants for these pieces cannot obtain more than two specimens each and the demand is continuous?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)
I have given directions that this shall be done; and to afford further facilities I have arranged that applications can be addressed directly to the Mint.
§ Sir C. OMAN
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman has realised that 2806 as all these 5s. pieces will go as keepsakes there is a profit of 4s. 6d. on every one which the Mint issues?
