Responding to the untimely death of Aled Roberts, Welsh Language Commissioner, Dr Ioan Matthews, Chief Executive of the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol said:
“We were deeply saddened to hear the news of Aled’s passing. His contribution to public life in Wales was mulitfaceted over a number of years. Aled was extremely supportive of the Coleg during his time as a member of the Senedd, including supporting the suggestion to extend the Coleg’s responsibilities to the further education and apprenticeships sectors.
It was a pleasure to work with him more recently in his role as Welsh Language Commissioner. We would like to extend our fullest condolences to Llinos and the family.”
