Not true Ray.

The UK government have said that they will sign the Charter for Gaelic,
Welsh, Irish and Scots, but have not actually signed it yet and have given
no indication of when they are going to.

It's been signed and sealed.

A Chairdean,

Chuir cuideigin a' cheist seo air luchd-taic na Gaidhlig air liosta eile. A
bheil fiosrachadh aig duine sam bith air?
Someone asked this question of the Gaelic advocates on another list. Does
anyone have information on it?

Tapadh leibh,


To my fascination I learn that France, albeit reluctantly, has
recently signed up for a minimum slice of a Council of Europe Charter
on Minority Languages.

Hier (7 Mai) à Budapest, Pierre Moscovici, ministre délégué aux
Affaires européennes, a signé la Charte européenne des langues
régionales ou minoritaires du Conseil de l'Europe qui tenait dans la
capitale hongroise la 104e session de son Comité des ministres.

La CHARTE, adoptée par le Conseil de l'Europe le 12 Octobre
1992, a pour ambition d'empêcher le déclin voire la disparition des
langues régionales ou  minoritaires considérées comme un aspect-
essentiel du patrimoine culturel européen.

I admit with embarassment that I'd never even heard of it! Do any of
the advocates of Gaelic (and our other minority or regional
languages) know whether the UK has signed up to this? Can the
Scottish Executive climb aboard of its own volition, or does
Westminster (as I fear) have to do it, if we are not yet on board?
