HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 c1686W

asked the financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that a shortage of cash copper exists in the Preston district; and, in view of the inconvenience which this causes to traders, can he undertake to augment the supply of cash copper from the Mint to meet the requirements of the Christmas trade?


I understand that a request for additional bronze Coln was received by the Mint from the Preston district, on the 30th November and that this is being dealt with.
