The Wales Report

EDM number 103 in 2017-19, proposed by Ben Lake on 29/06/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Broadcasting.

That this House regrets the actions of BBC Wales in cancelling its flagship political programme the Wales Report; further regrets that the number of programmes made for Wales in both Welsh and English has been reducing in recent years; highlights the crucial role that the media provides in holding the Government to account; believes that without such media Welsh democracy will not flourish and that politics can only be strengthened by independent scrutiny; notes the BBC's commitment for a new Scottish current affairs programme; further notes the lack of investment in Welsh television programmes to represent the way of life, culture and democracy across Wales; and calls on the Government to devolve broadcasting in Wales.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
