HC Deb 29 January 1960 vol 616 cc71-2W
Mr. Collick

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the shortage of Is. coins in Birkenhead and elsewhere and the difficulties occasioned thereby; and if he will take steps to have additional coins of this value minted and put into circulation in areas of shortage.

Mr. Barber

No. Issues of shillings are made by the Royal Mint to the banks against demands which reflect the requirements of the public. All demands from the banks for shillings have been fully met by the Royal Mint.
