Closing the CRE in Wales

My first contact with the Commission for Racial Equality was as someone who could not understand why they were supporting a case against Gwynedd County Council for asking that one of their employees in a care environment should be able to speak Welsh. That was years ago. For most of my adult life I felt that the Commission could be anti Welsh language.

Tonight, as the CRE's last Wales Commissioner, in partnership with the Welsh Language Board, I issued a press release that Thomas Cook had passed a new policy on the Welsh language. It was a good way to bring this commission's life to an end in Wales. I was deeply delighted.
