Details

The Welsh Language Act 1993 gives the Welsh and English language equal status in public life in Wales. It places a duty on the public sector to treat both languages equally when providing services to the public.

The act requires public bodies to produce a language scheme to explain which services they will provide in Welsh, how they will do so and when.

The Parole Board has adopted the principle that in the conduct of public business and the administration of justice in Wales, it will treat the English and Welsh languages on a basis of equality, so far as is both appropriate in the circumstances and reasonably practicable. The Welsh Language Scheme sets out how the Board will give effect to that principle in the services to the public in Wales for which it is responsible.

The Scheme has been adopted by the Parole Board Management Committee and was approved by the Welsh Language Commissioner on 10 August 2018.

The Scheme can be read here: Parole Board Welsh Language Scheme 2018-2020 (PDF, 238KB, 16 pages)

In order to ensure the Board delivers on its commitments, as set out in the Scheme, an Action Plan has been drawn up.

The Action Plan can be read here: Parole Board Welsh Language Scheme Action Plan 2018 - 2020 (PDF, 81KB, 4 pages)

One of the key actions is to have Welsh versions of key information on our web pages and this will be completed by the end of 2018.

The Parole Board has issued a submission to the Welsh Commission on Justice in Wales and this can be read here: Submission to Welsh Commission Consultation August 2018 (PDF, 196KB, 3 pages)
