§ 55. Mr. Ron Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Prices and Consumer Protection in view of the Advertising Authority's decision to uphold Mr. Peter Thompson's complaint against MCT's advertising policy on jesus jeans, if she will now make regulations prohibiting advertising that gives offence on religious grounds.
§ Mr. Maclennan
Advertising generally is required to conform to the voluntary code of practice supervised by the Advertising Standards Authority. I understand that the authority has determined that the particular copy theme complained of is unacceptable and should be withdrawn, and that the advertiser has accepted this decision.
