§ Mr. Donald Stewart
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the Scottish variant £1 coin, due to be minted in 1984, an inscription on the side of the coin in Gaelic rather than in Latin.
§ Sir Geoffrey Howe
[pursuant to his reply, 12 May 1983, c. 415]: The designs on the regional variants are to be announced by Royal proclamation in due course. I cannot anticipate this announcement.
