§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Industry in what ways his Department gives recognition to the Welsh 197W language; and if he will list the statutory forms used by his Department which are either bilingual or have Welsh versions.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
The Department gives recognition to the Welsh language by following both the provisions and the spirit of the Welsh language Act 1967.
There has been insufficient demand so far for any of the statutory forms used by my Department to be either bilingual or to have a Welsh version; but assistance would be provided for anyone in Wales having difficulty in completing a form in English.
