Tom Bodden / Daily Post North Wales
THE number of primary school pupils who speak Welsh fluently is virtually unchanged after 23 years, according to the schools census. The most recent Welsh government figures for 2009/10 show 14,684 pupils aged five or over spoke Welsh fluently at home, or 7.6%. That compared with 14,760 (7.2%) in 1986-87.
