§ Lord James Douglas-Hamilton
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if Her Majesty's Government have plans to issue any new commemorative coins.
§ Mr. Lawson
Her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the Master of the Mint's recommendation that a special £2 piece be issued to commemorate the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh in 1986. There will be a normal version of the coin issued at face value, and collectors' versions, in precious metals and base metals, issued at a premium.
