HC Deb 17 November 1964 vol 702 cc25-6W
39. Mr. Francis Noel-Baker

asked the Postmaster-General what representations he has received from the Advertising Inquiry Council regarding television advertisements; and what action he will take to protect the public against misleading and dangerous claims by advertisers.

Mr. Benn

The Advertising Inquiry Council have sent me a copy of comprehensive policy statement, which they issued last July, about advertising. I am considering the parts which relate to advertising on television.
