Alun Cairns, Secretary of State for Wales welcomes the announcement that S4C's funding will be fixed at its current level


Following the BBC Trust’s announcement that S4C’s funding will be fixed at its current level of £74.5m until 2022, the Secretary of State for Wales said:

I am delighted that S4C’s funding has been protected at its current level until 2021/2022. Many organisations have worked hard to help secure this settlement, which will safeguard S4C’s future for many years to come.

S4C plays an important role in Wales, cementing the Welsh language and culture within communities, and I will continue to do everything I can to ensure the channel’s continued success.
