§ 39. Sir T. Moore
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what reply he has received from the Governor of the Bank of England in respect of the proposal to alter the size and texture of the £5 note.
§ The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Henry Brooke)
I have been assured by the Bank of England that they will give full weight to the suggestion put forward by my hon. Friend, amongst others.
§ Sir T. Moore
In view of the widespread desire amongst wage earners who now receive these notes, and also amongst bank tellers who have to count them, to have notes of a more suitable size, I think I must advise my right hon. Friend that I shall raise the matter on the Adjournment.
