HC Deb 23 February 1978 vol 944 cc785-6W
36. Sir Anthony Royle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what action he is taking to halt the manufactures of forged sovereigns outside the United Kingdom; how many have been discovered to date; what method can be used to identify them; and if he will detail the countries in which they have been distributed.

Mr. Robert Sheldon

The matter is in the hands of the police, whose inquiries would be hampered if any information were given at this stage.
