§ 55. Captain CUNNINGHAM-REID
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he has received any representations from the Governor of Fiji regarding the provision of currency of smaller denominations than that at present circulating in Fiji and the Western Pacific, and what he has decided?
§ Sir G. BOWYER
The Governor of Fiji has recommended the introduction of nickel pence and halfpence in Fiji in place of copper coins. The proposal is now under detailed examination. In the British Solomon Islands Protectorate the shilling is the coin of smallest denomination in ordinary use. My right hon. Friend understands that the question of introducing coins of lower value has been the subject of some discussion, but he has received no specific recommendations 647 from the High Commissioner on the subject.
