Petition to UK Parliament, ONS , welsh secretary, Alun Cairns MP
Allow People outside Wales to answer the Welsh Question on the Census!
In the UK people can only say they speak Welsh if they live in Wales, this therefore does not give a true representation of the number of Welsh speakers in the UK. People in the other constituent parts of the UK can say they speak ANY other language other than 1 of the oldest languages in the country. Does this seem fair to anyone? Hundreds of people, including myself, who speak 1 of the oldest native languages of these Islands are being denied their right to register their ability to speak their mother tongue whereas a newly arrived migrant can state they speak their non-native language. Discrimination is discrimination, lets put all languages on an equal footing! I call on the UK government to stop discriminating against the Welsh language and allow those outside Wales to answer the Welsh question! O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau
