Thomas Cook Welsh 'ban' concerns

marnanel posted an item below about everyday Welsh. Sadly, Thomas Cook (a British travel agency) has caused a row here in Wales about banning staff in Bangor from using Welsh in business conversations.

"The Commission for Racial Equality in Wales says it will write to Thomas Cook asking the firm to explain why staff have been asked not to speak Welsh.
Staff at the travel agents' Bangor shop in Gwynedd have been told all work conversations must be in English."
