§ MR. BOWEN ROWLANDS (Cardiganshire)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he would give an assurance that at least one member of the Royal Commission to inquire into the Welsh Sunday Closing Act, as well as the secretary to such Commission, should be persons conversant with the Welsh language?
§ MR. MATTHEWS
I am not prepared to give any such definite assurance. Acquaintance with the Welsh language is no doubt desirable, but does not appear to me an essential accomplishment for the members of the Commission.
