HC Deb 02 March 1954 vol 524 c76W
44. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on the forged bank notes which have come from the Continent; and what steps are being taken to counteract this.

Mr. R. A. Butler

In view of criminal proceedings which are now taking place, it would not be proper for me to make any statement. The hon. Member may rest assured that the whole question is under the closest investigation.
