HC Deb 15 July 1913 vol 55 cc1076-7W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if the first assistant secretary to the Insurance Commissioners for Wales resigned his position owing to his inability to speak the Welsh language; and whether, in making appointments in the Irish-speaking districts of Ireland, he will see that only persons able to speak the Irish language will be appointed?


With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Plymouth on 26th November last. The answer to the latter part of the question is in the negative.
