That this House welcomes the publication of the Welsh Language Legislative Competence Order; congratulates everybody who has taken part in the development and drafting of this important piece of legislation; recognises that Wales is a bilingual country and that both languages deserve equal status; and hopes that there will be a speedy process through the scrutiny stages of the Legislative Competence Order and that its quick adoption will allow the Welsh Assembly Government to bring forward an Assembly Measure leading to a greater usage of one of Europe's oldest languages in a society where the rights of speakers of both languages are respected.
