Thank you for drawing our attention to the Culture, Welsh language and Communications Committee’s current consultation on the issues that the committee should consider in the upcoming period.

I welcomed your comments, and those of the other members of your committee, during the consultation session at the National Eisteddfod in Monmouthshire on Monday 1 August regarding your wish to hold a consultation on broadcasting.

As you are aware, S4C is facing another important phase in its history, as the UK Government has announced its intention to hold an Independent Review of S4C’s remit, accountability, governance and funding arrangements early in the New Year.

S4C would be most glad of the opportunity to contribute to such an inquiry, and we would very much like to invite you as a committee to visit our headquarters in Cardiff, in order that you may learn more about S4C’s work and the challenges and opportunities which face us as the only Welsh language television channel.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to take part in the consultation, and may I wish you all the best as Chairperson of the committee.
