HC Deb 15 July 1952 vol 503 c144W
63. Mr. F. Willey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he proposes to take to implement the recommendations in Command Paper No. 8219 about the decimal coinage.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The report of the committee to which the hon. Member refers was concerned with weights and measures. References to decimalisation of the coinage were incidental. No decision has yet been reached on the committee's report generally and certainly none on decimalisation of the coinage, to which there are many objections.
