Today’s announcement further reinforces this Government’s commitment to a strong and independent Welsh language TV service.
S4C has, undeniably, made an enormous contribution towards the creative industries in Wales, and crucially, to promoting the Welsh language. Indeed, it is the only Welsh language channel in the world.
The Chancellor has recognised the importance the people of Wales place upon S4C, and has secured its funding for 2015/16.
I am confident that the future is bright for S4C, and that it has the stability and certainty that it needs to continue to go from strength to strength.
