A PLAN to create one million Welsh speakers by 2050 “has not been fully thought through”, a committee of AMs has said.

A report by the National Assembly’s Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee into the commitment by the Welsh Government found not enough thought had been given to the resources and investment needed to achieve the aim.

The committee also argued more than 650 new Welsh language classes, almost twice as many as the Welsh Government has predicted, will be needed to achieve the aim.

Chairwoman and Plaid Cymru South Wales West AM Bethan Jenkins said: “It is clear from considering the evidence that success will require hard work, considerable additional resources and clear targets. It will also need to be founded on the continuing support of the people of Wales, Welsh and non-Welsh speakers alike.”
