HC Deb 21 August 1894 vol 29 c179
MR. LLOYD-GEORGE (Carnarvon, &c.)

asked the Secretary to the Local Government whether he would cause inquiry to be made as to the grounds on which the Registrar General cast doubt on the accuracy of the Census Returns respecting the Welsh-speaking population in Wales?


said, that the Registrar General was at the head of an important Government Department, and, in the matter of the Census, acted under statutory authority. Under these circumstances, he could not officially make the inquiry suggested by his hon. Friend, but he would make personal inquiries into the matter, and would communicate the result of those inquiries to the hon. Member.
