To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, if he will meet the Chancellor of the Exchequer to discuss the effect of the reductions in funding to S4C proposed in the Spending Review and Autumn Statement 2015.

I have regular meetings with the Chancellor of the Exchequer, which provide opportunities to discuss a range of issues, including matters related to funding of services across Wales.

The Government is committed to Welsh language programming and to the future of S4C. The majority of S4C’s funding comes via the BBC and last week's spending review settlement on the Government element of S4C's funding therefore represents a modest reduction in its overall funding.
