This government is committed to spreading jobs and prosperity throughout the UK, and it is important that our broadcasting sector provides for and reflects the whole country. As part of this, we have made clear that Channel 4 must make a greater regional impact. We are in discussions with Channel 4 about how they should do this, and we will set out next steps soon.
