HC Deb 17 July 1970 vol 803 c273W
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will now take steps to withdraw the requirement for coin dealers and numismatists to hold a licence from the Bank of England when they wish to trade in or to collect modern gold coins.

Mr. Higgins

Not at present but my right hon. Friend will examine the need for continuing restrictions in this field, as in others.
