'English only' rule at Lidl shops sparks Welsh row
Facepalm

Quote:Staff at Lidl supermarkets are being stopped from speaking any language other than English in their UK stores - including Welsh.

The retailer said its policy is for staff to speak in English to customers, irrespective of their native language.

It comes after two staff members in Scotland were banned from speaking Polish to each other on their tea break.

The store said it was to ensure all its staff and customers "felt comfortable".

"It is Lidl UK company policy that staff speak in English to customers, irrespective of their native language," the company told the BBC Welsh-language website Cymru Fyw.
