HC Deb 03 December 1973 vol 865 cc318-9W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for Wales in his recent appointment of members to the Welsh Language Council how many members are men and how many women ; and what were his criteria in selection of members of each sex.

Mr. Peter Thomas

Twelve—including the chairman—are men and two are women. Members were appointed for the personal contribution which they could make from a wide range of relevant experience.
