EU Languages

Posted in Language at 1:15 pm by Mithridates

Sorry about the light posting lately - real life has been intruding. In any case, here is some info about Welsh and the EU:

Plaid Cymru’s Euro-MP Jill Evans has welcomed last night’s decision by Europe’s Foreign Ministers on a framework which gives semi official status to languages such as Catalan, Galician and Basque and on the regulation which gives the Irish language the status of a working language used at the European level.

Ms Evans - who has been leading Plaid Cymru’s campaign for Welsh to become an official EU language - says that the deal opens the door for Welsh to get a similar status if the UK Government has the will.
