Belfast City Council undertook an important consultation on its Draft Linguistic Diversity Policy. An Irish-language policy was included within this.
Though not as strong as it should have been, it was a significant step in the right direction and the Irish-language community had an opportunity to put our own recommendations forward by filling out a quick questionnaire to Belfast City Council.
The Council's survey was available in English online, while we also created an Irish-language version of the form which could be filled in below dóibh siúd ar theastaigh uathu an comhairliúchán a fhreagairt i nGaeilge.
Tuesday, 18 July 2017 was the deadline for submissions. Thanks to all who participated!
Conradh na Gaeilge's own recommended responses can be found here for your information.
Disclaimer: In the questionnaire on the Linguistic Diversity Policy of Belfast City Council, there were a number of questions which related to personal details (age, gender, religious beliefs etc.). It was Belfast City Council who sought this information, not Conradh na Gaeilge. The Conradh destroyed any personal information following the conclusion of the consultation.
