He made the comments as he gave evidence to the Welsh Affairs Committee's inquiry into the channel.

He told the committee that he felt low viewing figures were at the heart of the issue.

The channel says almost 1m people in Wales watched S4C during the last four weeks of 2010, with an additional 400,000 outside Wales.

Addressing questions in the House of Commons committee, Mr Vaizey told MPs: "The concern the department has is, that with such low viewing figures, that maybe it is not making the impact on the Welsh language and on Welsh culture that it could.
