Firstly: To create a Gaelic Languages Act in respect of all powers devolved to the Scottish Parliament for the use of Scottish Gaelic (A’Ghàidhlig) in all fields of public administration. As a starting point, raising the status of A' Ghaidhlig in Scotland the status enjoyed by Welsh in Wales under the Welsh Language Act 1993 as currently amended. Thus allowing residents and businesses of Scotland to use the Gaelic Language in all transactions with departments of the Scottish government, other Scottish Authorities and in mainstream economic activity. Secondly: To Support ( in liaison with the UK Government) the creation of a Gaelic Languages Act in the UK parliament, for the use of A'Ghaidhlig (Scottish Gaelic) in Scotland and An Gaeilge Ultach (Ulster Gaelic) in Northern Ireland, bringing the status of both the Gaelic languages at UK level into line with the status enjoyed by Welsh under the Welsh Language Act 1993 as currently amended and so enable residents and businesses in Scotland and Northern Ireland to use the Gaelic Languages in transactions with departments of the UK government and in mainstream economic activity. These provisions will enable our Gaidhlig Language communities to be economically and socially functional and contribute to the post-Covid renewal of the Scottish economy.
