HC Deb 04 May 1965 vol 711 cc132-3W
23. Mr. Carmichael

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the 1s. coin is very seldom given in change; if he is satisfied that there are sufficient of such coins in circulation; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. McDermot

The way to get more shillings in circulation is for employers, shopkeepers and others to ask their banks for supplies. The Royal Mint is ready to meet all demands from the banks.
