CARMARTHENSHIRE LANGUAGE PLAN SHOULD BE COPIED BY OTHER WELSH COUNTIES
The Language Plan accepted by the full Carmarthenshire Council is one that should be emulated by other Welsh counties. That is the call of Dyfodol i’r Iaith in response to Carmarthenshire’s decision to accept the Plan without opposition.
Heini Gruffudd, chairman of Dyfodol i’r Iaith said, “It is a historic for a county in Wales to accept a Language Plan which covers housing, the economy, education and language in work and in society.”
He added, “The Language Plan which was accepted by Carmarthenshire has the ability to transform the position of Welsh in the county. It addresses most aspects that fall within the competence of the County Council. We look forward to seeing the language being increasingly used by employees in the County, and to seeing the County providing Welsh medium activities for young people.”
“Dyfodol i’r Iaith presented comments to the working group that prepared the Welsh Language Plan, and it is good to see that the County has responded so positively.”
“The Welsh Government needs to accept that the Welsh Language Plan accepted in Carmarthenshire is used as a pattern for other counties in Wales.”
“In the end, the Welsh will thrive if it is used in the home, in society and at work, above all else.”
