§ Mr. Wigley
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will take steps to ensure that there is no discrimination under company legislation against companies who submit their accounts to Companies House in the Welsh language.
§ Mr. Howard
Under the Companies Act, accounts submitted to the Registrar of Companies in any language other than English must be accompanied by a certified translation into English.
I am prepared to examine these requirements to see if any changes are desirable.
