HC Deb 24 January 1983 vol 35 c312W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will establish in Wales an ombudsman to deal with questions relating to the use of Welsh.

Mr. Wyn Roberts

We are satisfied that the existing legislative provisions are sufficient to enable the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration and the Commissioner for Local Administration to consider allegations of maladministration, which can include questions relating to the use of the Welsh language, by Departments and authorities subject to investigation.
