The plan should be withdrawn completely. A cross-party group of peers has told the Government that Channel 4 should not be sold off, and that it is financially fit enough to weather the effects of the Brexit vote.

They went onto reject John Whittingdale’s comment that the broadcaster would be “better off” in private hands.
