A Living Language A Language for Living. Consultation on a Strategy for the Welsh Language

The Welsh Assembly Government is committed to ensuring that the Welsh language thrives. This consultation document sets out our vision for the language and what we will do, together with our partners, to increase the numbers who speak and use the language.
Start of consultation: 13/12/2010
End of consultation: 04/02/2011

We want to ensure that Welsh remains an integral part of our culture and society and that it flourishes as a language of daily use.

Our aim is that the strategy will build on the successes of Iaith Pawb and the work of the Welsh Language Board.

It also reflects the commitments in 'One Wales', including

  • the conferral of legislative competence on the Welsh language on the National Assembly for Wales,
  • the introduction of a proposed Welsh Language Measure, and
  • the publication of our Welsh-medium Education Strategy.

You will find questions at the end of each section of the consultation document. We welcome your replies to these questions or any other comments you wish to make.
