After it was announced that plastic bank notes could start being issued within three years under new plans by the Bank of England, we ask if you would welcome the change.
The Bank of England says polymer notes are cleaner, more secure and – because they last longer – £10 million a year cheaper than the cotton paper currently used.
The proposals could see new-style £5 and £10 notes starting to replace paper currency for the first time in the Bank's 300-year history.
Bank governor Mark Carney introduced plastic notes two years ago in Canada while in charge of its bank.
