That would be another option.
It wouldn't have mattered if they had been.
It's only a year or 2 ago I stopped getting £1 notes in my change in Scotland!
Try getting rid of them south of the border
Some of the comments
No need to tell lies, they haven’t been legal tender for nearly 20 years, you may get one but it’s as worthless as empty fag packet
No lies at all you numpty! According to Wiki they are still in circulation today despite last being actually produced in 2001. Why are in they still in circulation if not legal tender up there?And why were they still being printed in 2001 if they stopped being legal tender in 1999?
The Royal Bank of Scotland £1 note is a banknote of the pound sterling. It is the smallest denomination of banknote issued by The Royal Bank of Scotland. The current cotton note, first issued in 1987 bears an image of Lord Ilay, one of the founders of the bank, on the obverse and a vignette of Edinburgh Castle on the reverse.
The £1 note is currently the smallest denomination of banknote issued by The Royal Bank of Scotland. The bank ceased regular production of £1 notes in 2001; the denomination is still in circulation although rarely seen in cash transactions today
So as I said, worth as much as a fag packet.
You must be fairly simple if you are accepting them
Could it just be that scottish notes are rarely seen in London, and shop workers have no idea what they look like, so far more risk off loss to them.
Even up here (Gateshead) i rarely see any Scottish notes, and wouldn't have a clue if i was handed a dodgy one. If they were just being twats, then i agree with you.
Two teessiders then : 4 heads are better than 2
I have only once ever had a Scottish note refused - in a corner shop in London.
The proprietor (in a very strong Indian subcontinental accent) said "I'm very sorry - we don't accept foreign currency" - I though it was really quite funny and just used an English note instead.
It's understandable if people aren't familiar with the different notes.
It's like when you go in a Scottish supermarket and the carrier bags always have to have a massive Saltire on them. There is simply no need, it's like the companies are trying to stress they are definately not in England or even the UK. I Love the Scotch anarl like.
It’s just an inferiority complex, they are used to it though.
You are H and I claim my £5 before @Son of Stan does
Scotch don't even use the notes themselves they rarely have over a fiver worth of money anyway the tramps
Legal tender is just a concept to do with settling debts
I don’t see the problem with them myself. It’s still money.
Although Scottish and Northern Irish notes are legal tender, there is no compulsion on the retailer to accept them, they only have a duty to accept bank of England notes. So no. Mrs Murray can however redeem it at any high street bank.
What's the public purse got to do with it?
Judy Murray is not a civil servant or a politician as far as I am aware. If she wants to spend her own money on doughnuts then what's it got to do with you or I?
Says in the article that she’s an smp?
Is that not the case?
