HC Deb 04 March 1924 vol 170 c1173
67. Mr. OWEN

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that a document written in the Welsh language and submitted for stamping toy the trustees of Jerusalem Chapel, Garn Dolbenmaen, Carnarvonshire, to the Inland Revenue Office, Carnarvon, has been returned unstamped from the Deed Marking Branch, Inland Revenue Office, Somerset House, London, with a request to furnish a translation thereof; and whether he will make arrangements at Somerset House for the attendance of an official competent to deal with documents in the Welsh language?


I was not aware of the particular case to which the hon. Member refers. Arrangements have now been made under which in future any necessary translation of documents in Welsh which are presented for stamping will be made in the Department.
