§ Mr. REA
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take advantage of the opportunity which will be afforded by the forthcoming issue of new coinage to follow the course now adopted by nearly all other nations and introduce nickel coins of the value of a penny and twopence, either concurrently with or in substitution for the present bronze ones?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
No, Sir. My right hon. Friend does not think the experience of other countries in connection with nickel coinage affords adequate grounds for its introduction in the United Kingdom, either in substitution for or concurrently with our present bronze coinage.
