Closed petition PE1922: Cancel all Local Authority expenditure on Gaelic expansion

Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to abandon the expansion of Gaelic.

Previous action taken

Written to MSP for Greenock & Inverclyde and MSPs for West of Scotland

Background information

In my view:

1. There is no demand in the Central belt
2. Funds are limited and should be spent wisely
3.There is no evidence of Gaelic being the "national" language (except in Ireland)

We do not need scarce money spent on dual language road & rail signs, document and website translations, Local Authority employee language education. Have we suddenly become rich with money to burn? I consider that there is no economic benefit in what is a frivolous, vanity project.
