With discussions now taking place regarding the relaunch of Y Cymro, Dyfodol i’r Iaith calls upon the Welsh Government to provide adequate support for this iconic newspaper in order to secure its future and its development.
Heini Gruffudd, Dyfodol’s Chair said:
“Y Cymro is our only national Welsh language newspaper, and its survival and success represents a key contribution to our culture and the Welsh media. We would call upon the Welsh Government to provide adequate support for the newly-relaunched paper by allocating a grant that at least corresponds to that given to Golwg. We would hope that an emergency grant be agreed in the first place, to formalised in due course by the Welsh Books Council.”
