Commissioner Hearings 2014 – Multilingualism sidelined

Jill Evans

As MEPs consider the make-up of the new EU Commission, EFA MEP Jill Evans (Wales) talks about the importance of multilingualism and linguistic diversity in Europe.

Promoting multilingualism is a priority for the European Free Alliance Group which has already won greater status at EU level for languages like Catalan, Basque, Welsh and Gaelic. Jill Evans regrets the failure to appoint a dedicated Commissioner for Multilingualism, which will continue to be a priority for the EFA Group.
