NDM6669 - Plaid Cymru debate

NDM6669  Rhun ap Iorwerth (Ynys Môn)


To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:


1. Recognises the importance of broadcasting to the sustainability of viable democracy in Wales;

2. Is concerned by the significant decline in ITV Wales's broadcasting hours, and significant cuts to S4C and its current uncertain financial position;

3. Is also concerned about the position of Welsh-language and Welsh broadcasting on commercial radio and local television, along with the impact of the UK Government's proposals to further regulate the radio market;

4. Notes that Wales needs to be at the forefront of the development of media technologies and that Welsh-language and Welsh broadcasting needs to be on a broader number of platforms and modes of producing, publishing and distributing content;

5. Agrees that full consideration needs to be given to the devolution of responsibilities for broadcasting to Wales;

6. Calls on the Welsh Government to investigate the feasibility of devolving powers over broadcasting to Wales and to report back to the Assembly within one year.
