HC Deb 03 November 1975 vol 899 c50W
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understand that the authority has determined that the particular copy theme complained of is unacceptable and should be withdrawn, and that the advertiser has accepted this decision.
