§ Mr. Alex Carlile
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to make available birth 391W certificates in the Welsh language for babies of Welsh parentage born in England; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mrs. Angela Knight
There are no immediate plans to make available birth certificates in the Welsh language for Welsh babies born in England.
The White Paper "Registration: proposals for change", Cm 939, published in 1990, recommended that such events be registered in a bilingual—Welsh and English—register held by the Registrar General from which certificates could be issued when required. The Government remain committed to implementing the White Paper proposals when parliamentary time permits.
