HC Deb 06 March 1972 vol 832 cc1021-2
29. Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will instruct the Passport Office to accept notes issued by the Royal Bank of Scotland.

Mr. Anthony Royle

I am grateful to the hon. Member for raising this matter and I am happy to say that arrangements have now been made for Scottish banknotes to be accepted by the Passport Office.

Mr. Rankin

The hon. Gentleman does not know the fix in which he has put me. I was prepared for something else. All this morning I have been met with refusals to do anything. Does he realise that his answer provides a very happy conclusion to my work?

Mr. Royle

I am always delighted to help the hon. and Scottish Gentleman.
