HC Deb 23 April 1940 vol 360 c18
36. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will issue instructions that Scottish banknotes shall be accepted as currency and without restrictions by all British paymasters and official or semi-official institutions with the British Expeditionary Force?

Mr. Stanley

Instructions will be issued for Scottish banknotes to be accepted at their face value by field cashiers for exchange into francs for troops of the British Expeditionary Force, in the same way as English banknotes. I understand that the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes and other organisations accept these note sat their face value.
