DYFODOL WELCOMES SPENDING TO PROMOTE WELSH LANGUAGE EDUCATION

Dyfodol i’r Iaith has welcomed the Government’s decision to spend £51m on promoting Welsh language education.

Heini Gruffudd, the organization’s Chair said:

“We are very pleased to hear that funding is available to promote such a key need. We would like to emphasise however, that we also wish the Government ask local authorities to draw up schemes to develop Welsh language education over periods of 10 and 20 years to ensure far-sighted planning.”

“This expenditure has to be supported by a programme that allows for urgent action and intelligent long-term planning if we are to have an expansive scheme which makes a realistic contribution to the aim of creating a million Welsh Speakers.”
