Cornish language petition forces ministers to answer over funding cuts

Posted By on 23rd October 2016

The government has been forced to respond to an online petition calling for funding for the Cornish language.

As the deadline for signatures closed this weekend, support reached a total of 10,342 – just clearing the target of 10,000 required to force a ministerial response.

If a petition reaches 100,000 names it must be further considered for a Parliamentary debate.
