THE  SCOTS  LANGUAGE

As the language is at a crucial stage, would you be prepared to

highlight the issue on the home page?   Since last in touch, I've

contacted Rob Gibson MSP, Convener of the Scottish Parliament's Cross

Party Group on the Scots Language of which I'm a member.   A meeting is

being held later this afternoon so hoping for good news when the minutes

come to hand, hopefully within the next 7 days or so.   I also received

an email from his Parliamentary Assistant yesterday saying he would be

very interested in my input and how work on the Census has been progressing.


OUR  SUPPORT  FOR  THE  SCOTS  LANGUAGE

(condensed history available here)

IS  REQUIRED  AS  A  MATTER  OF  EXTREME  URGENCY ! ! It would be impossible to exaggerate the importance of this Petition, upon which, I passionately believe, the future of the Scots language, spoken by an estimated 30% of Scotland's population, may largely depend.

SCOTS  LANGUAGE  PETITION

TO  BE  SUBMITTED  TO  THE  SCOTTISH  PARLIAMENT
