§ 5. Mr. ELLIS DAVIES
asked the Minister of Pensions whether, as appellants under the Pensions Regulations resident in North Wales have now to appear before tribunals in Liverpool, he will say whether members of that tribunal, and particularly the officials, are able to speak with the appellants in their own language?
§ Major Sir HARRY BARNSTON (for Colonel GIBBS)
By hearing appeals from North Wales at Liverpool instead of 1205 Wrexham, serious delay in deciding these appeals is avoided. The change has involved no alteration in the personnel of the Courts deputed to deal with these appeals, which includes Welsh-speaking members and secretary.
§ Mr. DAVIES
Are any of the members of the tribunal or officials concerned able to speak the Welsh language?
