Peter Black AM welcomes Operating Agreement between BBC and S4C

January 30, 2013 12:33 AM

Commenting on the announcement of the new Operating Agreement between the BBC and S4C that will ensure that Welsh-language television has a secure future as S4C moves to being primarily funded by the BBC until 2017 while ensuring its independence of S4C, Peter Black Shadow Heritage Minister, commented:

"This agreement enshrines several key principles that were at the forefront of the campaign to maintain the independence of S4C, albeit within the BBC family. In particular I am pleased that it ensures the editorial, managerial and operational independence of S4C as well as provides financial stability until 2017. Wales needs an independent statutory corporation overseeing Welsh Language broadcasting, which is able to generate its own commercial revenues and this agreement delivers that."
