asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she has any plans to publish any further bilingual Welsh/English information leaflets about social security benefits.
My Department will continue to publish leaflets and forms in both the Welsh and English languages where the need arises. No bilingual leaflets or forms are published.
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services (1) how many information leaflets published by her Department are available (a) in Welsh and (b) in bilingual—Welsh and English—form;(2) how many information leaflets published by her Department are available in languages other than English; if she will publish details of the individual leaflets available, and the languages of publication; and whether they are bilingual or monolingual.
The Department publishes five information leaflets in languages other other than English. They are "Family Income Supplement" (Welsh) and four leaflets in Urdu, Punjabi, Gujurati, Bengali and Hindi entitled "Having a Baby", "Feeding Your Child", "Caring for your Child" and "Keeping your Child Safe". All are monolingual.
