HC Deb 15 June 1981 vol 6 cc246-7W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, further to his reply to the right hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. Stewart) on 9 June, on what basis it was decided to publish the visitors' guide for use in the public galleries in French, German and Arabic as well as English, but not in Welsh.

Mr. Pym

The foreign language versions of the guide were produced in accordance with a recommendation in the Services Committee's eighth report of Session 1976–77 (paragraph 27). I understand that the intention was to make the guide available in those languages for which there was the greatest demand.
