asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Monmouthshire is attached to Wales for the purpose of the Welsh Advisory Panel of the British Council; whether he is aware that this county has no representation on it; and whether he will make additional appointments accordingly.

I understand that Monmouthshire is regarded by the British Council as being attached to Wales for the purposes of the Welsh Advisory Panel, but this Panel was not selected on a territorial basis. The members were in fact chosen, after consultation with many distinguished Welshmen, as representing different aspects of Welsh life and thought as a whole, and I see no reason why the Council should be asked to make any further appointments.
