Oor Vyce, a group consisting of activists from academia, the arts, media and politics, is arguing that the Scottish Government should emulate parts of existing Gaelic policy to put in place a similar public body for Scots. Gaelic currently has Bòrd na Gàidhlig, a public agency created in 2006 by the previous administration to secure the status of Gaelic. The board has an annual budget of more than £5 million. Oor Vyce says that a board comprised of experts and stakeholders would be better placed to create “a national, strategic approach to Scots” and insulate the language from changing political circumstances.
