Stop oppressing Cornwall – Council of Europe’s warning to Britain – Telegraph.co.uk

The Council of Europe criticises the Government, which recognised the Cornish as a minority in 2014, for scrapping funding of the native language. Just 500 people are thought to be able to speak Cornish fluently, but the Council of Europe wants funding to be reinstated. It even calls on the BBC to broadcast more in Cornish.

The report also expresses concern at a lack of funding for Cornish cultural events and festivals, such as St Piran’s Day on March 5, the national day of Cornwall.
