    If a court orders someone to pay someone a certain amount, the person who recieves it is only under obligation to accept it if it is in legal tender.
    I would welcome the honorable member to re-read my bill. for the purposes of thsi bill I have re-defined the term. If he can suggest a more appropriate term i'm sure he would gleefully point it out.

    Your s1 definition is 1) not ostensibly limited to this bill; 2) awkwardly worded and 3) means that three £10 notes would not be bound to be accepted to cover a £28 debt.

    nay, I don't think you should mess with legal tender, lest you get paid in Bristol only cash?

    Some people were asking about TSR law overruling EU law earlier and this is possible because of the Canon amendment.

    This bill is much much better, an entirely different and more admirable bill.

    I'm fond of supporting local issues and local nuances so i'll be voting aye.

    Can you not read? The euro part has been dropped and it just gives recognition to all versions of pound sterling as opposed to just the English one.
    Is it so hard to add that into a changes for the second reading section at the bottom like everybody else

    Why should a shop be forced to accept a note which may well be forged?

    That's an argument for banning all paper currency and isn't related to this bill

    And if someone belive that the notes were fake then they could refuse them. Because they aren't under any obligation to take fake money

    Source please?

    If so, I might write an amendment so it's more equivocal. EU membership should not be irrelevant.

    yes they would.
    this bill would force shops (or you) to accept the all the minor currency's as if they were pounds sterling, unless you could prove they were forged.

    It's true, I was shacked by it as well. Whilst I agree somewhat, it would be massively unpractical to have to be held back by EU legislation that we have no way of changing in the MHoC.

    I was thinking something more like 'EU law will be presumed to prevail over subsequently enacted MHoC provisions unless there is an express derogation'.

    Only the Bank of England should print currency, but I don't mind Scotland and NI printing their own as it is much more reasonable for them to do so.
    Agreed, but also the Channel Islands as well.
