A member of the Welsh parliament asked three formal questions about recent reported UFO activity across the country. He received a very surprising answer!
According to the BBC there has been a lot of UFO activity reported across Wales in recent times. This prompted Conservative politician Darren Millar, the shadow health minister, to table three questions for Labour's Edwina Hart, the minister for economy, science, and transport:
- Will the minister make a statement on how many reports of unidentified flying objects there have been at Cardiff Airport since its acquisition by the Welsh government?
- What discussions has the Welsh government had with the Ministry of Defence regarding sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales in each of the past five years?
- What consideration has the Welsh government given to the funding of research into sightings of unidentified flying objects in Wales?
The minister replied to the questions with the following statement in Klingon!
ach ghotvam'e' QI'yaH-devolved qaS
Despite being the world's fastest growing language Klingon is not the official language of Wales or any other country and this is believed to be the first time it has been used for official government business anywhere in the world.
When translated the message was seen to say;
"The minister will reply in due course. However this is a non-devolved matter."
A non-devolved matter is an issue that can only be resolved by the full UK parliament rather than the devolved Welsh Assembly.
We anxiously wait to see if the full UK response is also in Klingon. Or if the Queen will present her annual speech in that language.
