HC Deb 04 March 1988 vol 128 c746W
Mr. Harris

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will arrange for the 1991 census forms to include a question asking if the respondent speaks a Celtic language; and asking him to identify that language.

Mrs. Currie

A question which would ascertain the number of people speaking a Celtic language is being considered, as are many other suggestions. However, no decisions have yet been taken on the content of the 1991 census; proposals will be published as a White Paper later this year.
