I beg to ask Mr. Chan- cellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the propriety of refraining from coining five shilling pieces in the new silver coinage.

THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY
(Mr. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN, Worcestershire, E.)

I am requested by my right hon. friend to state that, as at present advised, he does not think it advisable to discontinue the coinage of five shilling pieces.
