Hughes Review

News | Committee Scrutiny of the Hughes Review Begins

This morning the Culture, Welsh Language and Communications Committee heard from the chief-executives and chairs of Literature Wales and the Welsh Books Council in response to the recent Hughes Review, the Independent Review into Support for Literature and Publishing in Wales. The controversial report recommends sweeping changes to the structures of the funding organisations involved in Welsh literature, and none more so than the Books Council and Literature Wales. Below is the video footage of the two committee sessions, first with Lleucu Siencyn and Damian Walford-Davies of Literature Wales (from 1:17:00), and then M. Wynn Thomas and Helgard Krause of the Welsh Books Council (from 2:19:00).
