Bilingual Policy

The National Assembly for Wales has two official languages, Welsh and English.

In line with the Assembly's Official Languages Scheme, the Panel requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in National Assembly proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.

We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligations.
