Scottish Parliament Promotes Use of Gaelic Language Services

The Scottish Parliament reflecting its commitment to give Scots Gaelic parity with English has called for visitors to Parliament, Members of the Scottish Parliament and Parliamentary Staff to learn and use Gaelic. 

Dr. Alasdair MacCalium, Gaelic Development Officer, is quoted on the Scottish Parliament's Web Page: "As Gaelic is an integral part of Scotland's heritage, we'd like to encourage all speakers of the language to use your Gaelic in your Parliament.  Visitors and Staff that are non-Gaelic speakers are also being encouraged to use the opportunity to learn more about this rich heritage language."

This latest announcement is part of the five year Gaelic Language Plan launched last month.
