From 2013, the channel will be funded from part of the BBC's licence fee and discussions are ongoing between the BBC, S4C and the UK Government about how the relationship will work.

During the question session, Mr Vaizey admitted that he had never watched S4C, but said he did watch Fireman Sam with his children - a programme that originated on the channel, alongside other favourites with children such as SuperTed and Sali Mali.

Questioned by the Newport East MP, Labour's Jessica Morden praised the value pre-school programming under the umbrella of Cyw.

But she noted that the viewing figures of the children were not included in the viewing figure analysis used by the minister.

"I think that is a very valid point," accepted Mr Vaizey.

Responding to the comments from the minister, a spokesperson for S4C said it welcomed his references to evidence high quality programming on the channel.

But the spokesperson added: "Despite this, we're disappointed that incorrect figures were used in the wider debate about the number of viewers.

"Nearly 1m people in Wales watched S4C during the last four weeks of 2010, with an additional 400,000 outside Wales.

"In 2010, 600,000 people watched S4C at some point during a typical week - an increase of 65,000 on 2009."
