Detail of outcome
The consultation paper “Welsh Language Scheme” invited comments on MOJ’s proposed revised Welsh Language Scheme.
The Scheme demonstrates how MOJ complies with the Welsh Language Act 1993 by ensuring that, in the conduct of public business and the administration of Justice in Wales, the English and Welsh languages are treated on a basis of equality.
The consultation period closed in 2015 with publication of a formal response being delayed by a number of changes to government and further ongoing dialogue with key stakeholders.
This consultation response summarises the responses received and how the consultation process has influenced and improved the revised Scheme. The new Scheme was approved by the Welsh Language Commissioner on 9 April 2018.
We look forward to hearing what people have to say and making sure that the revised scheme continues to reflect the needs of people whose preferred language is Welsh.
After 3 years of running our current Welsh Language Scheme, we’ve produced this revised scheme in accordance with guidance from the Welsh Language Commissioner under the Welsh Language Act 1993. It will be submitted for formal approval by the Welsh Language Commissioner following the consultation process.
This draft revised Welsh Language Scheme describes how the Ministry of Justice will continue to treat the Welsh and English language equally.
The closing date for the consultation has been extended until 7 January 2015 to allow further responses.
