Report of the Working Group on the Welsh Language and Local Government.

The Minister for Public Services appointed a Working Group on the Welsh Language in Local Government Administration and Economic Development in December 2015. The Group was asked to consider the role of the Welsh language in local government administration and as the language of the workplace, and local government’s role in supporting the Welsh language though its economic development functions. 

The Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government published the report on 14 June 2016, inviting responses from local government and other stakeholders. 

On 20 October, the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government issued a Written Statement and published the Welsh Government’s response to the Report, with a summary of the  engagement responses.
