We call on the Welsh Assembly to create a new Welsh language law as we feel that the current laws regarding the Welsh language do not go far enough to protect the rights of Welsh speakers. Currently, the private sector is not required to have Welsh language plans or policies and does not have to treat the Welsh language as an equal to English. Whilst Welsh speakers have increased rights, they now need to have the right to be able to use Welsh in ALL aspects of their daily lives.
