Supporting and promoting the Welsh Language

Purpose of the consultation

The Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee is holding an inquiry into supporting and promoting the Welsh language.

The Committee’s inquiry will focus on the legislative, policy and wider context.

To assist your response, the terms of reference for the inquiry and the consultation are:

  • Post legislative scrutiny of the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 - to assess the perceived successes and limitations of the legislation, and the impact and effectiveness of Welsh Language standards in improving and increasing access to Welsh language services.
  • To assess whether the legislative framework supports or limits Welsh language promotion and its use.
  • An international perspective - gathering evidence on legislation to protect and promote minority language planning in other countries.


Providing Written Evidence

The National Assembly for Wales has two official languages, Welsh and English.

In line with the Assembly’s Official Languages Scheme, the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in National Assembly proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.

We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.

Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
