A Plaid Cymru AM will try to raise concerns about the funding of S4C in the Assembly later. Bethan Jenkins has asked the Presiding Office to allow an urgent question following reports that the channel's funding could be further cut by the UK Government.
– Bethan Jenkins AM, Plaid Cymru
While I recognise that the Welsh Government does not have power over broadcasting, a decimated S4/C could have a significant impact on its devolved responsibilities – not least for the Welsh language. This news comes on top of Ed Miliband’s announcement last week that he would adhere to Tory austerity plans, so it is now vital that the First Minister and his cabinet colleagues tell everyone in London that more cuts to our only Welsh Language television channel will not be tolerated.**
