The Chair of the S4C Authority, Huw Jones said:
"S4C is very glad to understand that the UK Government’s financial commitment to S4C is to continue.
"S4C has worked closely with the ministerial team at the Wales Office, with committed Members of Parliament, with prominent members of the National Assembly and the Wales Government, and with members of the House of Lords to try and ensure that the UK Government understands the far-reaching implications of any decision regarding the funding of S4C. Today’s announcement reflects the strength of the arguments which have been presented by them. We are grateful to them all for their efforts and to the Chief Secretary for the Treasury, the Prime Minister and the Culture Secretary for listening to them."
