Text of Petition:                     

The Senedd, and other bodies, should start using Welsh terms if they want to successfully increase the use of the Welsh language, they must set an example to others. Instead of referring to Caerdydd by it’s English given name, ‘Cardiff’, use it’s Welsh name instead. After all, speaking Welsh in Wales is no longer a crime - is it not?


“Do as I say, not as I do” it’s time to lead by example.
