HC Deb 24 May 1928 vol 217 c2057
40. Mr. MAXTON

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what is the loss of weight in one shilling of the new coinage as compared with the old; and if any complaints have been received from users of automatic machines and gas meters as to the unsuitability of the new coins?


There has been no change in the weight of the shilling, which remains as fixed in 1816. No complaints have been received.
