§ 56. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that medals and discs issued for sale or distribution to the public are in some cases exactly the same size as coins required for use in automatic machines; and whether he will take steps to prevent the distribution throughout the country of large numbers of these discs, in view of their improper use?
§ Mr. COOPER
Some complaints to this effect have been received, and I am consulting the Departments concerned with a view to seeing if any new preventive measures can be taken.
§ Mr. BUCHANAN
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the people who own these automatic machines "do" the public just as frequently as the public "do" them?
