Future Of Gaelic

EDM number 613 in 1996-97, proposed by Calum Macdonald on 05/03/1997.

That this House welcomes the publication of the Report on Securing the Future for Gaelic, produced by Comunn na Gaidhlig; supports its key aim of achieving secure status for the language through legislation; praises CNAG for the many constructive and responsible suggestions in their report; hopes that it will receive support in principle from all political parties; and believes that the provision of an official measure of support by legislation, as proposed by CNAG, will contribute to consolidating the enormous progress made with cross-party support in recent years, and also contribute to developing the potential of Gaelic in the life of modern Scotland.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
