WELCOME FOR THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE BBC AND S4C

Dyfodol i’r Iaith, the Welsh language lobbying movement, has welcomed the newly signed agreement between the BBC and S4C.  Ruth Richards, chief executive of the movement, commented,

“The Agreement will give S4C financial stability for the next ten years.  We now look forward to seeing the Channel giving appropriate attention to developing the use of new technologies.  Nevertheless, we want confirmation that funding will at least take account of any future inflation. We also want to know how does this affect Euryn Ogwen Williams’ review of S4C.”

“Dyfodol i’r Iaith has supported the need for a pragmatic financial settlement until the Welsh Government can develop responsibility for broadcasting in Wales.  This agreement is to be welcomed as part of a comprehensive programme of promoting the Welsh language.”
