The Liberal Democrat and Conservative amendements to the official languages bill failed in a debate on 3 October 2012.
Conservative Spokesperson on the Welsh Language Suzy Davies AM called for the translation of all the assembly's proceedings including committee meetings.
Liberal Democrat Aled Roberts AM argued for publishing copies of proceedings in English and Welsh at the same time.
Former Presiding Officer Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas said that would be "impractical bi-lingualism."
There had been some
in relation to the assembly's Welsh-language policy, following a decision by the commission in 2010 to stop translating plenary meetings from English into Welsh overnight.
The official languages bill was eventually passed unanimously.
It makes Welsh and English the official languages of the assembly given that it is not answerable to its own
Welsh language measure
