The Welsh economy needs all the help it can get. Being unable to select the best candidates because of this language issue is an unnecessary impediment to academic, economic and social progress. At present English speakers (and all non-Welsh speakers) are effectively denied the right to work in parts of the public sector in Wales. This must be contrary to EU law.
The desire in Wales to support the Welsh language is understandable and legitimate. However the limitation in making apointmemts is only one example of a wasteful and damaging practice in support of the language which actually damages the overall performance of the Welsh nation. Local authorities and utility companies usually send out bills and documentation in two languages. The recipient should have an option to receive paper in one language only. This would save a very large duplication of paper which is presently dumped immediately on delivery.
