HC Deb 14 November 1939 vol 353 cc540-1
63. Mr. Ammon

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of gambling in football pools being again permitted, it is intended to withdraw postal orders from ordinary currency tender and restore the poundage charges?

Sir J. Simon

This matter is under consideration, but at the moment I am not in a position to add anything to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon (Sir H. Williams) on 26th September.
