Welsh Language: Legislation

Volume 463: debated on Monday 23 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales whether he plans to bring forward new legislation on the Welsh language; and if he will make a statement. (150227)

The Government have no plans to bring forward legislation at Westminster on the Welsh Language. The Welsh Assembly Government announced on 6 June this year, their intention to seek enhanced legislative competence in the area of Welsh Language by way of an Order in Council. If approved by the National Assembly for Wales and Parliament this would enable the administration in Cardiff to bring forward an Assembly Measure on the Welsh Language.
