It now transpires that it was this department that footed the bill for the visit of the pope to the UK. A bill of £1.85 million. Correct me if I am wrong but the Vatican is not exactly impoverished now is it.
Well I want my sixpence back.
Technically this is an old 6d, now equivalent to a little over 2p. Sixpence today, in old money would be 1s/2d. (For you youngsters that's pronounced one an'tuppence)
