Devolution of broadcasting

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee is looking into whether broadcasting should be devolved to Wales.


This is an opportunity to tell us if you think Wales should have greater powers in this area and how that might be achieved. What, if any, aspects of broadcasting should be devolved to Wales, and how would this benefit Wales and Welsh audiences.


 Areas you may like to give attention to include:


  • The BBC, including its governance and funding.
  • S4C, including its governance and funding.
  • Other public service broadcasters (ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5).
  • Regulatory functions currently carried out by Ofcom.
  • Commercial and community radio services.
  • How any changes proposed align with the shift to digital media consumption.
  • How any changes proposed would impact on the media production sector.


Providing Written Evidence

The National Assembly for Wales has two official languages, Welsh and English.

In line with the Assembly’s Official Languages Scheme, the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in National Assembly proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.

We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.

Please see guidance for those providing evidence for committees.
