Motion text

That this House notes the vital role Neuadd Pantycelyn Hall has played in promoting the Welsh language and culture within the University of Aberwystwyth; further notes that the University under its Royal Charter has an obligation to promote the Welsh language; further notes that the University was established in 1872 as the people's University of Wales, paid for by small donations from the Welsh public and the generosity of industrialist David Davies Llandinam; expresses concern that without a dedicated Welsh language hall the existing ethos of the University will be damaged; understands that the Hall requires remedial work; and calls on the Council of the University to accept the recommendations of its own working group on the future of the Hall that it is preserved as a designated hall of residence for Welsh speakers and learners following completion of corrective work.
