HL Deb 11 March 1830 vol 23 cc157-8
The Duke of Wellington,

in presenting a Petition from the Parish of St. Pancras, against the Vestry Act, took an opportunity to answer a question put to him by his noble friend (Viscount Goderich) on a former evening, with respect to a return of Country Banknotes, stamped within a certain period. On inquiry, he found that he was right in supposing, as he did, when he answered his noble friend's question at first, that the amount of Scotch notes was included in the account on both sides. He had ascertained that it would be quite impossible to distinguish between the stamps issued for England and Scotland, except as regarded those for 1l. notes, which were all Scotch. The account included the notes of the chartered banks.
