HC Deb 15 June 1961 vol 642 c62W
14. Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now make a statement about his policy regarding decimal currency; and, in order to assist British trade throughout the world, if he will adopt a decimal coinage system based on the £ sterling, 10 florins and 20 pennies to the florin, to come into operation in January, 1963.

Mr. Barber

I cannot at present add anything to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann) on 16th February.
