Spain asks European Parliament to allow use of Catalan

The request could then be extended to Basque and Galician, if regional governments request it. Unanimous approval will be needed first from the EU Council. The move is seen as a conciliatory gesture by the centre-left coalition in Madrid to the Catalonia separatist movement.
