§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
Her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the recommendation of my predecessor, the right hon. Member for Kingston-upon-Thames (Mr. Lamont), that a 50p coin be issued featuring a special design to commemorate the 50th anniversary next year of the D-Day landings of June 1944. It is intended that the coin should be available in 1994 for general circulation. There will also be collector versions in base and precious metal.
