The Programme for Government is available and we are delighted to see that it promises to:
‘Introduce a plain language requirement on all public service communication so people can understand information the first time they read or hear it. Using plain language saves time and money and reduces mistakes and complaints. We will consult with NALA.’
NALA is the National Adult Literacy Agency.
This is a fantastic endorsement of plain English (and plain language) and we look forward to provide our expertise as needed. It is a triumph for the people of Ireland and for the world of plain language.
