Datganoli Darlledu : Devolve Broadcasting

Cyfieithiad sydd ar y dudalen yma o beth o'r wybodaeth sydd i'w chael yma: http://cymdeithas.cymru/datganolidarlledu

The time has come to devolve powers over broadcasting to Wales.

From the lack of Welsh language presence on commercial radio, local TV and the serious cuts to S4C to the lack of content about Wales in the media, it's clear that London is not managing the media for the benefit of the people of Wales. Decisions about the media in Wales should be made by the people of Wales. It's time to devolve broadcasting. It's also clear that Wales suffers from a democratic deficit, because British broadcasters confuse people by reporting on stories which affect England only.

A recent YouGov poll shows that people in Wales favour devolving broadcasting. According to the results of the survey commissioned by Cymdeithas yr Iaith, excluding those who didn't know, 65% favour devolving responsibility for broadcasting with 35% against.
