HC Deb 29 March 1976 vol 908 cc352-3W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, in the light of the decision to proceed with plans for the introduction of European passports, he will take steps to provide for the use on them of the Welsh language as one of the oldest of all European languages.

Mr. Rowlands

Discussions among representatives of the Member States of the European Economic Community on the introduction of a uniform pattern for national passports are still continuing. The use of the languages of the members is one of the questions under discussion.
