40. Mr. Foot

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make arrangements for minting more shillings in order to deal with the shilling shortage in many areas.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Steps are being taken to make available a stock of shillings to meet local shortages which cannot be met from surpluses in other areas.
