§ Mr. Wigley
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what arrangements he has made for the translation of press releases from Government Departments into the Welsh language. 
§ Mr. Michael
This is a matter for individual Departments. In the past, I made clear the willingness of my Department to advise on such matters. I have written to colleagues underlining the importance of this matter,574W and the advice which is available to Departments from the Welsh Language Board. I am pleased to see that a number of Departments have prepared Welsh language schemes which set out their policy on the use of Welsh in press notices.
