HC Deb 25 January 1945 vol 407 cc985-6W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the present rate of expenditure by way of salary and allowances to all British officials in the U.S.A., including those employed by U.N.R.R.A., as well as those in the direct employ of the Crown.

penny pieces, silver three-penny pieces, sixpenny pieces, shillings, florins and halfcrowns.

Sir J. Anderson

Since the Royal Mint is in ordinary times in competition with other bodies for overseas orders, I regret that details of the costs of manufacturing coinage must remain confidential.
