HC Deb 16 January 1987 vol 108 cc336-7W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidance he has given to police forces in Wales on the production of bilingual Welsh-English fixed penalty tickets for motoring offences; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We have not issued any formal guidance to chief constables of this question, but there was consultation between the Home Office and the Association of Chief Police Officers before implementation of part III of the Transport Act 1982, which had regard to the practical difficulties of producing and using convenient bilingual versions of the form.
