Welsh medium education target 'could take 800 years'

The teaching of Welsh needs to be boosted to help reach the government's target of one million Welsh speakers by 2050, Plaid Cymru has said.

The party will use a Senedd debate on Wednesday to stress the role of education in promoting the language.

Plaid wants more funding found to ensure more teachers and assistants can use the language in the classroom.

Shadow Education Secretary Llyr Gruffydd claimed the number of children being taught in Welsh was "flatlining", and needed to improve.
