HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 c199W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Attorney-General how many additional interpreters have been appointed for employment in courts of law in Wales since the passing of the Welsh Language Act; where are they employed; how many have been trained; and what training they have received.

The Attorney-General

The services of a Welsh interpreter are used in any case in Wales or Monmouthshire in which a person wishes to speak in Welsh and Welsh interpreters are not appointed to the courts on any regular basis, but are available when required. No record is kept of their employment and interpreters are not given special training for work in the courts, nor is such special training required.
