HC Deb 20 December 1955 vol 547 cc310-1W
Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what conclusion he has reached upon the representations made to him by the Association of Welsh Local Authorities that Cardiff should be recognised as the capital of Wales.

Major Lloyd-George

The Government have been impressed by the volume of support in Wales for the view that Cardiff is the city which should most appropriately be regarded as the capital of Wales, and in deference to these views the Government are prepared to recognise Cardiff as the capital of the Principality. No formal measures are necessary to give effect to this decision.
