HC Deb 16 October 1969 vol 788 c119W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the President of the Board of Trade what proportion of the staff employed at the Board of Trade offices in Cardiff were born in Wales; and what proportion of the whole is Welsh-speaking.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

This information is not readily available and to obtain it would involve disproportionate effort and expense. In any event, I do not think the place of birth and languages spoken by the Board's staff in Cardiff has any bearing on the job they are doing.
