Debate on Scottish banknotes

09 March 2009

House of Commons debates the second reading of the Scottish Banknotes (Acceptability in United Kingdom) Bill, a Private Members' Bill introduced by David Mundel, MP for Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale

Private Members' Bills are Public Bills introduced by MPs and Lords who aren’t government ministers. As with other Public Bills their purpose is to change the law as it applies to the general population. A minority of Private Members' Bills become law but, by creating publicity around an issue, they may affect legislation indirectly.
