The Bank of England announced that the spot cash price of the pound, still officially pegged at $2.80. will be allowed to fluctuate .wo cents either way on a limited •free" foreign exchange market which opened, this morning. The relaxing of the pound was announced Saturday, along with word that Britain intends to pay interest and principal installments of nfi million dollars due Deo. 31 on loans from the u.
