HC Deb 06 August 1976 vol 916 c1196W
Mrs. Wise

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will give a general direction to the nationalised industries concerned with public transport not to ban advertisements on political grounds, provided they are not in contravention of the law.

Dr. Gilbert

I have no powers to give such a direction. I understand that British Transport Advertising, and also the London Transport Executive, are guided by the Code of the Advertising Standards Authority in deciding on what advertisements to accept.
