HC Deb 07 March 1967 vol 742 c257W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Attorney-General what steps he will take to acquaint the magistrates' and other courts in Wales of the statutory provisions contained in Section 1 of the Welsh Courts Act, 1942, which give to the party or witness the sole right of deciding whether he will use the Welsh language.

The Attorney-General

Friend the Secretary of State for Wales in connection with the legislation which will be needed to implement those recommendations of the Hughes Parry Report which the Government has accepted.
