There's an unofficial collection of information on nationalized variants
of ASCII (officially known as ISO 636 based encodings):
According to it, NF Z 62-010-1982 [France] contains a pound sterling
sign (U+00A3 POUND SIGN £) in position 0x23. The name of the encoding
probably means what is known as NF_Z_62-010 in the IANA registry,
with ISO646-FR (and fr) as alternate name.
Unfortunately http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ does not seem
to contain mappings for ISO 636 sets.
