I know, from watching some historical programmes on the Welsh language, there was hostility in decades past. I will not ask if that has been entirely replaced, because it probably has not, but I am sure it has been much reduced. With the number of speakers in the metropolitan areas such as Cardiff, there would be more visibility, it would be more of a living and spoken language and be something of which people would not pass any notice. Would that be a correct analysis of the situation?
