New notes get the thumbs-up

Have your say

The Bank of England’s plans to introduce new banknotes printed on a thin plastic film – instead of the cotton paper currently used - have been welcomed by Derbyshire businesses, following a special forum.

A new £5 note, featuring Sir Winston Churchill, will be introduced in 2016, with a new £10 note featuring Jane Austen coming a year later.

Earlier this year, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce (DNCC) hosted a forum with the Bank of England to give local businesses the opportunity to give their views.
