Statement published: 18 January 2024

The BBC has proposed to extend the number of originated Welsh-language hours offered by BBC Radio Cymru 2 so that it becomes a new UK Public Service.

As required by the BBC Charter and Framework Agreement our role is to assess the impact of the BBC’s proposals on competition and consider whether the public value justifies any adverse impacts that we identify. This statement explains our final determination that the BBC may proceed with its proposal and our decision to place Operating Licence conditions on the service.
