Your Parliament, Your #Gaelic, Your Views, says Presiding Officer #gàidhlig


Gaelic speakers, Gaelic learners and non-Gaelic speakers are all being encouraged to give theirs views to the Scottish Parliament on the future shape of its Gaelic services.

Whether you take the short, three minute online survey about using Holyrood’s Gaelic facilities, or whether you want to submit a formal submission on the Parliament’s next Gaelic Language Plan, the Presiding Officer, Ken Macintosh, is urging people to have their say.

Announcing the launch of the online surveys, Presiding Officer, the Rt Hon Ken Macintosh MSP said:

Gaelic matters.  Whether or not you are Highland-born like me, it is part of who we are and part of Scotland’s rich cultural identity.

The Scottish Parliament recognises Gaelic’s special status and that’s reflected in our laws, and in the Gaelic services we offer people when visiting Holyrood and engaging with the Parliament.

That’s why we are launching two surveys about our Gaelic services – a quick and easy one to tell us briefly what you think, and a more detailed one about our Gaelic Language plan that covers our approach for the next five years.

“Do Phàrlamaid, do chànain, thoir dhuinn do bheachdan.  It’s your Parliament, your Gaelic, tell us your views.”

Do Phàrlamaid, do chànain, do bheachdan! Co-chomhairle air a’ Phlana Ghàidhlig againn #gaidhlig


Tha sinn air an treas plana Gàidhlig againn a chur air dòigh agus tha sinn a’ brosnachadh luchd labhairt, luchd-ionnsachaidh na Gàidhlig agus am poball san fharsaingeachd an cuid bheachdan a chur thugainn air cruth nan seirbheisean Gàidhlig.

Seo bhidio goirid a rinn an t-Oifigear Riaghlaidh Coinneach Mac an Tòisich BPA mun phlana.

Agus e a’ cur na suirbhidhean air bhog, thuirt e:

Tha Gàidhlig cudromach. Co-dhiù mura rugadh tu air a’ Ghàidhealtachd, mar a rugadh mi fhìn, tha i na pàirt dhinn agus tha i na pàirt de dhualchas beartach na h-Alba.

Tha Pàrlamaid na h-Alba ag aithneachadh na h-inbhe sònraichte a tha aig a’ Ghàidhlig, agus chithear sin anns na laghan againn agus anns na seirbheisean Gàidhlig a tha sinn a’ tabhann do dhaoine nuair a tha iad a’ tadhal air Taigh an Ròid agus a’ dèanamh conaltraidh ris a’ Phàrlamaid.

Mar thoradh air sin, tha sinn a’ cur air bhog dà shuirbhidh mu dheidhinn nan seirbheisean Gàidhlig againn – aon a tha luath is furasta, gus na beachdan agad a thoirt dhuinn gu gearr, agus aon mu dheidhinn a’ Phlana Ghàidhlig againn a tha a’ dèiligeadh ris na bhios sinn a’ dèanamh thairis air an ath chòig bliadhna.

“Do Phàrlamaid, do chànan, thoir dhuinn do bheachdan,” thuirt an t-Oifigear Riaghlaidh sa Ghàidhlig.
