David Cameron has written to Simon Hart MP to reassure him that the Government is committed to Welsh language broadcaster S4C.
Mr Hart had contacted the Prime Minister to call for an independent consultation on the future of S4C and for any decision about the channel's future to be put off until a review had been taken place.
Mr Cameron replied: "Let me assure you that the Government is committed to the provision of Welsh language broadcasting, including S4C.
"In the last spending round, S4Cs funding was protected. You make an interesting suggestion for a separate review on S4C, looking to establish its role and remit as a Welsh Language Broadcaster."
Mr Hart said: "It is reassuring to know that the Government is aware of the importance of minority language broadcasting and interested in S4C's future
