Historic Day for Welsh Language

This Measure is an historic step which for the first time gives the people of Wales the right to receive services through Welsh; reaffirms the official status of the Welsh language and creates a strong Commissioner to protect and promote the language.

This is the beginning of a long scrutiny period and our Ministers will be keen to listen to other ideas regarding the measure and how to achieve our aims.

Were Plaid Cymru not in Government, none of the above would’ve happened – no strong commissioner, no more services through Welsh and no official status for the language.
