That this House notes that next year will be the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Gwynfor Evans of Barry, who was voted the fourth most important Welsh hero of the last millennium in a National Assembly of Wales poll; further notes that Gwynfor was a Christian and a pacifist who campaigned peacefully for his beliefs including against the drowning of Tryweryn in the 1950s and for a Welsh language television station in the 1970s and 1980s; recognises that he was Plaid Cymru's first Member of Parliament and represented opinion across Wales which had never before been represented in the House of Commons; further notes that his bust was unveiled by local dignitaries and sits proudly in Barry Library, the town's seat of learning, and that his former home in the town has a Pride in Barry plaque to indicate the significance of the house in which he was raised; further notes the practice of naming establishments after relevant famous people connected with locations and subjects, such as Ysbyty Aneurin Bevan Hospital in Ebbw Vale; and believes it both fitting and appropriate on this anniverary for a Welsh language school to be named Ysgol Gymraeg Gwynfor in the town in which Gwynfor Evans was raised.
