§ Lord HOUGHTON of SOWERBY
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will ban all advertisements of alcoholic drinks on television.
§ Lord WELLS-PESTELL
With the approval of the Home Secretary, the provisions of the Independent Broadcasting Authority's Code of Advertising Standards and Practice which apply to all alcohol advertising on television were further strengthened last October. The possibility of additional restraints on alcohol advertising will be discussed in the consultative document referred to in another reply to my noble friend today.
