Welsh Language

Volume 477: debated on Monday 16 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment she has made of the level of demand for the services provided by (a) her Department and (b) its agencies and non-departmental bodies to be provided in the Welsh language; and if she will make a statement. (210542)

The Home Office Welsh language scheme came into effect in January 2002 and is in the process of being revised. Although no recent assessment has been made of the level of demand for the service the Department does abide by the principles of the Welsh Language Act 1993 and seeks to ensure that it makes Welsh language versions of published materials available whenever appropriate.
