HC Deb 07 June 1957 vol 571 c166W
Captain Kerby

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the new £5 notes are causing confusion in banks, shops and amongst the general public at large owing to their similarity to £1 notes; and if he will now withdraw his approval of the new issue.

Mr. Powell

I have no evidence that confusion is being caused. On the contrary, I believe that the new note has been generally welcomed.
