Welsh language group Dyfodol i’r Iaith welcome the fact the First Minister Carwyn Jones will now be responsible for the Welsh language. This will give the language a status across the whole range of the government’s work. Dyfodol hope that the First Minister will offer leadership to his ministers in the cabinet with regard to the Welsh Language. Chair of Dyfodol, Heini Gruffudd, said “The Welsh language needs to be considered across all government portfolios, from the economy to planning, from education to health, from housing to communities. With the responsibility for the Welsh language sitting within the First Minister’s office I am confident that the language will have appropriate attention.”.
Dyfodol is looking forward to arranging an early meeting with Carwyn Jones to discuss matters relating to the language
