§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will instruct the Decimal Currency Board to issue guidance to suppliers and hirers of rented television sets on the appropriate charges for rentals which previously contained an odd sixpence in the weekly sum due, in view of the fact that some suppliers have instituted a rental of £1.6 a fortnight in place of a previous charge of 10s. 6d. a week.
§ Mr. Higgins
Paragraph 26 of the Board's booklet "Your guide to decimal money' contains advice on periodical payments of £.s.d. amounts to which Section 5 of the Decimal Currency Act, 1969, applies; but it is not for me or the Board to advise on amounts in private decimal currency contracts, which are for the parties concerned to negotiate.
