§ 47. Mr. Gwynfor Evans
asked the Postmaster-General if he will instruct the Post Office in Wales to use the Welsh language as well as English on all its vehicles and buildings.
§ Mr. Joseph Slater
In predominantly Welsh-speaking areas where both languages are used on public buildings, we display the name "Post Office" in 169W Welsh as well as English on new or reconstructed Crown Post Offices, if a request is made and supported by the local authority and it is practicable to do so. I think this meets a need in a Welsh-speaking community. My right hon. Friend does not think there is any need to use both languages on Post Office vehicles, which are very familiar and easily identified.
