IMPORTANT LETTER FROM THE BISHOP OF ST. ASAPH. MR LLOYD GEORGE'S STATEMENTS REFUTED. The following letter appeared in the Timet on Wednesday last. TO THE EDITOR OP THE "TIMES," Sis,-In the House of Commons Met nignt a Vi,ch member, with whose opinion the other Welsh members who spoke expressed their oon- oorNuoe, is reported to have made this state- currence, "Tbe Bishops issued circulars to the clergy ment in every parish in North Wales, calling their atten- tion to these ( £ «, language) returns, and asking them to make inquiry 00 their own aocount with regard to their reliability. Each olergyman beoame an amateur detective, and inquiries were set on foot in eve .y parish. Letters were sent to the Bishops, which were forwarded to the Registrar-General. This really was the abundant evidenoe mentioned by the FAwistrar-Goueral, but which really was cooked I by a number of clergymen." Speaking for myself I may say that with regard to these devioss there is not one word of truth in the statement. I issued no circulars on this sub- jeot I made no inquiries from the clersay I neither made to nor received from the Registrar. General any oommunioation on the subjeot what. ever. This morning I sent the following telegram to the Eo^istrar-General :â" Last night in the House of Commons Mr Lloyd George stated that the Welsh Bishops forwarded to the RoOstrar. General results of inquiry made by their clergy as to the language census in Wales. May I ask if there is any truth in the scatement 2 11 To this telegram I rooeived the following reply from the Registrar-GeneralNo foundation for statement referred to." This statement of the Registrar- General will enable your readers to appreciate the character, as they already will have done the gravity, of the aoousation made under the shelter of th," nrivileee of Pa.rliament.- Your obedient serctnt. serfunt, A. G. ABAPR. J The Palace, St. Asaph, August Slat.
