34 MPs are backing Cornish language EDM

It was great to hear SNP MP Angus MacNeil on Radio Cornwall yesterday, talking about the importance of the Cornish and the Early Day Motion that he had tabled in Parliament in support of funding for the language.

I am pleased that his EDM now has a total of 34 signatures. Most come from our good friends in the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru teams, along with one member of the SDLP in Northern Ireland, three Lib Dems and five Labour MPs.

At this time, the EDM has not been supported by a single Conservative MP, which is appalling.

The support from SNP and Plaid also emphasises why, for Cornwall, it is important that we build Mebyon Kernow into a stronger political force.

So, if you are not already a member, why not join MK today …
