HC Deb 07 March 1901 vol 90 c829
MR. BRIGG (Yorkshire, W.R., Keighley)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he will consider the propriety of postponing the issue of any new coinage having on it the head of the King until decimal coinage is introduced.


The new coinage must be settled in the course of the current year. I do not think that the country is prepared for any fundamental change such as the question suggests.
