Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) − I was delighted to support my colleague Mr Alfonsiʼs report. After Donald Stewart was elected as an SNP Westminster MP in the 1970s he introduced the first ever Gaelic Language Bill at that place. When Winnie Ewing was a Member of this house in the 1980s she helped establish the minority languages intergroup. In the 1990s Michael Russell promoted a Gaelic Language Bill in the Scottish Parliament and finally, in the 21st century, we have an SNP Minister responsible for Gaelic and Scots. My party has campaigned for linguistic diversity for decades so I welcome this excellent report.
