Of course we in Wales see what the Question should have been.
I am assuming the question refers to Gaelic use in Scotland and Irish in Northern Ireland?
It seems to me that it would have been cheaper and more interesting if the question(s) were to be asked throughout the UK.
I know a number of Welsh speakers of varying degrees living in England . In 1993, S4C,published the results of a survey into the numbers of people who spoke or understood Welsh, which estimated that there were around 133,000 Welsh-speakers living in England, about 50,000 of them in the Greater London area.
If we are ro have a census of Welsh language speakers then it would be interesting how many are there outside Wales nd if the C figures are close then it greatly increases the numbers who speak the language.
Why are the census compilers prepared to look ridiculous by not asking a question which may be of some use.
that is if you think this expensive form of data collection is of any use anyway.
