HL Deb 10 December 1991 vol 533 c28WA
Lord Vinson

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have any plans to ask the Bank of England to reissue the current series of bank notes in better designed and more distinguishable denominations.

Lord Brabazon of Tara

The design of bank notes is the responsibility of the Bank of England. Bank notes need to incorporate an appropriate blend of security features and distinguishing characteristics, which the Bank believes is achieved with the new notes. It will, however, take account of the reactions to the notes already issued in designing future issues.
