That this House congratulates BBC Radio Cornwall for its work providing news and entertainment to over 140,000 loyal listeners across the Duchy, equivalent to 32 per cent. of the local population; notes that the quality of its programming gives it one of the highest average hours per listener ratings in the whole country, 15.44 hours per week; commends the valuable role it plays in maintaining Cornwall's character and community identity; acknowledges the help and information it provides to the millions of residents and tourists; believes that a functioning democracy needs an effective and objective local broadcast media; further acknowledges that BBC Radio Cornwall provides excellent value for money and is the brand leader in terms of cost per listening hour; but remains deeply concerned by proposals to end daytime programming; and calls on the BBC to make a commitment to fund Radio Cornwall to at least maintain thecurrent level and quality of output.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
