1. A bheil thu a’ smaoineachadh gum bi buidhnean poblach ag aithneachadh nan dleastanasan reachdail aca gu h-iomlan gus dèanamh cinnteach gun tèid a’ Ghàidhlig, agus mar sin, iomadachd cànanach, a làn aithneachadh agus a bhrosnachadh ann an Alba?

2. A bheil thu a’ smaoineachadh gu bheil am Plana Cànain Nàiseanta Gàidhlig 2018-2023 a’ coileanadh nan amasan aige, (is e sin gus barrachd dhaoine a bhrosnachadh gus Gàidhlig a chleachdadh nas trice agus ann am barrachd shuideachaidhean agus gus seo a chur an comas?) (Tha inbhe reachdail aig a’ Phlana seo a chionn ’s gun deach a dheasachadh mar thoradh air Achd na Gàidhlig (Alba) 2005).

1. Do you think public bodies fully recognise their statutory duties to ensure that the Gaelic language, and therefore linguistic diversity, is fully recognised and promoted in Scotland?

2. Do you think the Gaelic Language Plan 2018-2023 is achieving its aims, (which is to encourage and enable more people to use Gaelic more often and in a wider range of situations)? (This Plan has legal status because it has been made as a result of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005.)
