My Lords, with your Lordships' permission, I should like to make a brief statement about the new coinage. With the gracious permission of Her Majesty the Queen, my right honourable friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has sent to me a set of approved pieces of the new coins, and I have arranged that this set shall be exhibited in your Lordships' library. They are there now for your Lordships to see.
