P-04-677 Equal access to Welsh Language

This petition was submitted by Remigijus Šiaučiūnas, having collected 45 signatures.


Text of the Petition

Welsh language should be as accessible as English language is. Sadly, it is not the case. I am talking from my own experience. I moved to Wales and I would like to learn at least a little bit of Welsh. It is relatively easy to find a free English class and it is impossible to find a free Welsh language class.

The Equality Act states that no one should be treated less favourably than another just because of his or her nationality, ethnic or national origins, religion, religious or philosophical belief or absence of religion or belief.

Learning Welsh should be as accessible as learning English to anyone, including the first generation immigrants.
