To propose that the National Assembly for Wales:
1. Regrets that the amount of money spent by the BBC on programmes for Wales in English has fallen by 25 per cent in the last decade.
2. Believes BBC Wales has a vital role to play in reflecting the lives, aspirations and challenges of the people of Wales.
3. Notes Lord Hall's admission that the funding for English language content made in Wales for a Welsh audience has dropped to unsustainable levels, and therefore calls upon the BBC to outline in detail its spending commitments to Wales in the near and further future.
