Legislation for the Welsh Language

Legislation which underpins the Welsh Language.


A consultation on a White Paper ‘Striking the right balance: proposals for a Welsh Language Bill’ was held between 9 August 2017 – 31 October 2017.

The proposals aim to ensure strong leadership for the language; create robust arrangements for promoting and facilitating the use of the Welsh language and to make improvements to the current Welsh Language Standards system.

The summary of consultation responses is available alongside the consultation documents. We are continuing to consider these responses carefully to help inform our policy in moving forward with the Welsh Language Bill.
