Gabh mo leithscéal go bhfuil clog an tSeanaid ag bualadh. I welcome Mr. Roberts. I am a former Minister of State at the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht with responsibility for the Irish language and the Gaeltacht areas in this country. We are often envious of what we hear about the Welsh language and I welcome this opportunity to say a few words to the commissioner.

How important has the assembly been in promoting the language? The Senedd coming into being gave more prominence to locally elected assembly members.

How important was having laws being made in Wales and for Wales in promoting the language?
