The new National Gaelic Language Plan, which sets out the framework for the faster growth of the language across Scotland, has been launched this week at the Scottish Parliament.

The central purpose of the plan is to encourage and enable more people to use Gaelic more often and in a wider range of situations.

The key messages, aims, priorities and new commitments contained in the plan all contribute to achieving this increased use of Gaelic.

Principal among these are the following:
* Gaelic belongs to the whole of Scotland.
* Promoting a positive image of Gaelic.
* Increasing the learning of Gaelic.
* Increasing the use of Gaelic.
