This consultation ended 5 December 2014.
Details of outcome
These standards will enable the Welsh Language Commissioner to place duties in relation to the Welsh language on Local Authorities, National Park Authorities and Welsh Ministers.
The regulations which specify the standards have been drafted with the aim of:
- improving the services Welsh-speakers can expect to receive from organisations in Welsh
- increasing the use people make of Welsh-language services
- making it clear to organisations what they need to do in terms of the Welsh language
- ensuring that there is an appropriate degree of consistency in terms of the duties placed on bodies in the same sectors.
We are seeking views from members of the public the organisations that will be subject to the first set of standards and anyone else with an interest in them.
