Several thoughts immediately occurred to me:
I would be extremely surprised if there are any Welsh speakers who do not also speak English.
I would also be extremely surprised if any non-Welsh people present at the Council speak Welsh.
In that case, why should it be necessary for anyone to speak in Welsh at this meeting?
Apparently, £841 million is spent annually on translation costs generally so who is footing the bill for this latest undertaking?
Silly me, I should have guessed:
"The extra costs of translation are being borne by the Welsh Assembly Government."
Translated into plain English, that means us - i.e. taxpayers in Wales.
