Catalan in Europe

I take it Arcadi Espada is joking:

We have obtained an impressive victory: citizens who write to European organisations in Catalan will have to send their letter to the Secretary of State for European Affairs, who will send to Brussels the text in Catalan and a copy in Spanish. The answer from Europe will be written in Spanish and sent to the above department, which will translate it into Catalan and finally forward it to the citizen.

Annual cost: around 1.5 million euros.
