HC Deb 07 November 1968 vol 772 cc131-2W
20. Mr. Boston

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to change the regulations about the use of children in television advertisements.

Mr. Elystan Morgan

My right hon. Friend has today laid before Parliament an Order to bring into operation Part II of the Children and Young Persons Act, 1963, and the Children (Performances) Regulations, 1968. The Act and the Regulations will provide comprehensive safeguards for children who take part in performances of all kinds, including, for the first time, protection for children appearing in television advertisements.
