HC Deb 05 June 1992 vol 208 c660W
Mr. Llwyd

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales if he will make a statement concerning the provision of bilingual health promotion material by his Department to district health authorities in Wales.

Mr. Gwilym Jones

Most of the health promotion materials used in Wales are produced by the Health Promotion Authority for Wales. Wherever possible, the authority published this material in Welsh or bilingual form.

When the Department arranges the publication of its own posters it always ensures that they are either in bilingual format or are available in English and Welsh.

This Department does distribute English-only posters which are produced by the Department of Health. We are currently examining means by which these can be translated, printed and made available in the Welsh language.
