HC Deb 26 January 1982 vol 16 cc293-4W
Mr. J. Enoch Powell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when, and to whom, he issued his decision that a plaque comprising medallions of Her Majesty and the Pope, which is to be produced in precious metals by the Royal Mint and sold through the Royal Mint Numismatic Bureau, does not fall within the description of "medals and coins, " for the purpose of rule 4 of the Lord Chamberlain's rules of May 1973; and if he will reconsider that decision.

Sir Geoffrey Howe

I issued no such decision. Item 9 of the Lord Chamberlain's rules makes it clear that any doubt as to the interpretation of the rules may be referred to the Comptroller of the Lord Chamberlain's Office.
