Response to the consultation
Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation
Purpose of the consultation
The Culture, Welsh Language and
Communications Committee held an inquiry into the future of S4C.
Committee looked at the following issues:
sufficient funding for the channel looks like. For example, who should
provide it, and how should it be calculated – should it be linked to a
formula? How should this be supplemented with revenue raised by S4C?
S4C’s statutory remit should be. Is its current remit fit for a
contemporary broadcaster, and if not, how should it change? How should it
reflect the digital role of a modern broadcaster?
governance and accountability structures S4C should have in place. For
example, should responsibility for S4C be devolved to Wales?
S4C’s relationship with the BBC should look like.
visibility of S4C: covering issues such as S4C’s prominence on the
electronic programme guide and smart TVs.
