Bid to improve Welsh
THE Welsh Language Commissioner is to second an officer to the Wales Office in a bid to improve Welsh language provision across government.
The move follows the appointment of Guto Bebb MP as an adviser to the department on Welsh language issues in December last year.
Secretary of State for Wales David Jones said: "As the department with lead responsibility for the Welsh language in the UK Government, the Wales Office fully understands the crucial role the language plays in the identity and culture of Wales.
"We are committed to ensuring that the UK Government provides high quality services in the Welsh language where there is demand, and to work closely with the Welsh Language Commissioner to achieve this. We are looking forward to welcoming the representative".
