Consultation: Standards and the Welsh Language 11/08/12
A non statutory consultation exercise led by the Welsh Language Commissioner to encourage discussion in advance of the formal introduction of Standards as set out in the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011.
The principal aim of the Welsh Language Commissioner, an independent organisation established by the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011, is to promote and facilitate use of the Welsh language. This will entail raising awareness of the official status of the Welsh language in Wales and imposing Standards on organisations. This, in turn, will lead to the establishment of rights for Welsh speakers.
The aim of this consultation on draft Standards is to provide an opportunity for anyone to state their opinion on the Standards and what is to be achieved by way of Standards. The Commissioner is eager to receive comments and opinions from organisations and the general public on the draft Standards.
The consultation period will commence on 16 May 2012.
The consultation period will end on 11 August 2012.
