HC Deb 24 March 1998 vol 309 c117W
Mr. Wigley

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he is(a) taking and (b) planning to take to ensure that the National Assembly has sufficient translators and translating equipment available from its establishment. [35585]

Mr. Ron Davies

I have asked the Welsh Language Board to give consideration to the provision of resources for translation in the Assembly. I am also seeking the advice of my Advisory Group in relation to the Assembly's bilingual operation, and arrangements for translation will be considered in that context.
