HC Deb 16 April 1919 vol 114 c2922W

asked the Pensions Minister whether he is aware that Welsh ex-sailors and ex-soldiers, and their dependants, appearing before the appeals tribunals in support of their appeals, are greatly handicapped by being unable to express themselves in the English language and do justice to their own interests, and the fact of the appeals tribunal for the North Wales area holding its settings in Manchester enhances their difficulties; and, in view of these circumstances, will he consider the desirability of selecting a convenient centre in North Wales for the hearing of appeals, and appointing on such tribunal one or more Welsh-speaking members?


The suggestion of the hon. and gallant Member will be considered.
