HC Deb 15 October 1941 vol 374 c1339
Mr. John (Rhondda, West)

I ask leave to present a petition from residents of the Principality of Wales, including Monmouthshire, who as such cherish its language, culture and tradition. The petition says: Wherefore your petitioners pray that your honourable House will take the necessary steps with all convenient speed to secure the passage of an Act of Parliament placing the Welsh language on a footing of equality with the English language in all proceedings connected with the administration of justice and of public services in Wales. Your petitioners are in duty bound and will ever pray for that to be brought about.
