To ask the Attorney-General whether there are any plans to initiate a review of the use of the Welsh language in courts in Wales; and if he will make a statement.

The Government are committed to the principle of equal validity in the use of English and Welsh in court proceedings in Wales as provided for in the Welsh Language Act 1967.
