NotesNews - Pound coins and notes could cease to be legal tender within three years of the next election, according to the Government's plans for abolishing sterling, with ministers setting their sights on a spring demise for the British currency. The document, entitled the National Changeover Plan, conjures up images of an upheavel even more dramatic than that of the 1971 conversion to decimalisation.
