AS A regular customer at the local Spar, I was surprised and confused by a small notice above the freezer which read: “Erlinir lladron” in one-inch-long letters and also underneath in letters a quarter of an inch only long, a warning that “Thieves will be prosecuted”. I wonder if this is a printing error or does it imply that Welsh speakers are more likely to shoplift than the English speaking majority of Welsh citizens?

Perhaps the Spar management is not aware of the Official Language Bill. Brian Donovan, Darlington Court, Newport
