It was announced as part of the Spending Review settlement that S4C funding from the Government in 2015/16 will be maintained at 2014/15 levels. BBC funding for S4C to 2016-17 is set out in the BBC-S4C operating agreement available at: http://www.s4c.co.uk/production/downloads/e_cytundeb-gweithredu-s4c-bbc.pdf

As part of the BBC Charter Review process and the next licence fee settlement, the Government intends to look at minority language broadcasting more broadly, and the funding necessary to support that.
