"Welsh MPs have called for greater freedom to conduct debates in Parliament in the 
Welsh language.

Labour's Paul Flynn called for "practical arrangements of reasonable value" to allow 
Welsh-language speeches when Welsh business is discussed.

Plaid Cymru MP Jonathan Edwards agreed, saying the Welsh affairs and Welsh grand 
committees should be bilingual."
