Tribute to Lord Roberts of Conwy

14/12/2013

Following news of the death of Lord Roberts of Conwy, the Chair of the S4C Authority Huw Jones said:

“Wyn Roberts was a guardian angel for the Welsh language and for S4C within the Conservative government of the 80s and 90s. Both were close to his heart and he did everything he could to promote and support them. His close interest continued when he became a member of the House of Lords and his wise counsel was priceless. Alongside his measured and careful style, he had humour and mischief in his eye and great personal warmth. He made a huge contribution at a critical time for the Welsh language and he will be greatly missed.”
