The Welsh Affairs Select Committee will be hosting an engagement session on Wednesday 8th March in Llandudno which aims to understand the views of the public about the TV and radio offering available to them.
The committee will be asking questions like, do TV and Radio in Wales give you what you want? And Do you prefer online services such as Netflix? They are also keen to understand whether programmes available to people living in Wales are representative of their communities; and what the future may hold for TV and radio.
Commenting on the session, Mr Roberts Said:
“As member of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee, I am really looking forward to hearing the views from members of the public about broadcasting in Wales.
“The committee has been gathering evidence on the broadcasting landscape in Wales since it opened the inquiry in July last year. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who has any views on the Television and radio service and programming.
“I would like to encourage residents from Delyn to come along and share their views.”
Welsh Affairs Committee Chair, Rt Hon Stephen Crabb MP, said:
“Our Committee is talking to people in Llandudno to build our evidence base about something we know can get people talking: TV and radio. From Welcome to Wrexham to Gavin and Stacey, there can be something for everyone.
“That is the crux of why we are holding this engagement event in Wales. Our Committee is keen to know whether what is on offer on TV and radio is enough. Are the programmes on offer representative – and is that important to us? Is more of what we want only available on streaming services such as Amazon Prime and Netflix? What should the future hold for TV and radio across Wales?
“We invite people in North Wales to sign-up to attend our engagement event to give their opinions, which will then help inform our report to the UK Government on Broadcasting in Wales.”
For further details of the event, and to register attendance, members of the public are invited to contact the House of Commons Select Committee engagement team by emailing email@example.com. The deadline for sign up is Wednesday 22nd February.
