Welsh Language Commissioner starts work with new powers (video)

Nick Powell / ITV News
The Commissioner has what the Welsh Government calls 'strong enforcement powers' to protect the rights of Welsh speakers to access services in the language and she can launch an official investigation into any interference in people's freedom to speak Welsh to one another. She will start with powers over many public services, not necessarily provided by government or local councils but by businesses licensed by them.
