TAC comment on TV Licence Fee Settlement Announcement

18 January 2022

Dyfrig Davies, TAC Chair said: ʺWe are very pleased to see an increase in funding for S4C. TAC strongly supported the case, and we look forward to see how S4C will be implementing its plans to commission high-quality programming from the independent production sector in a multi-platform media landscape. This will ensure continuity of service for Welsh language speakers and learners in Wales and to a wide audience in the UK and worldwide.”
“Overall however a two-year freeze in the TV Licence Fee will create significant difficulties for the BBC which, as a world leading media organisation, does very important work in supporting the UK’s creative industries. This generates huge economic and cultural value including for Wales, and we have great concerns about this decision and the effect it will have on the creative industries at a time when they are still recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
