HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 c273W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Attorney-General if he will seek to amend the Welsh Language Act 1967 to permit affidavit evidence to be submitted in Welsh in all legal proceedings where such evidence is normally admissible in England.

The Solicitor-General

No. The Welsh Language Act 1967 does not appear to preclude a court from accepting affidavit evidence in Welsh where such evidence is properly admissible in English.
