Bank keep­ing notes

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

THE Bank of Eng­land will keep the £5 poly­mer note in cir­cu­la­tion and is­sue a new £10 poly­mer note as planned, de­spite con­cerns from ac­tivists over traces of an­i­mal fats.

It con­firmed that an “ex­tremely small amount” of tal­low was used to pro­duce poly­mer pel­lets, which were then used to create the ma­te­rial for the £5 note. The bank said it con­sid­ered de­stroy­ing, reprint­ing or de­lay­ing is­sue of the £10 note but said it would be costly and com­pro­mise anti-coun­ter­feit mea­sures.
