HC Deb 15 March 1983 vol 39 c82W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Minister for Trade what progress has been made in the European Community draft advertising directive; and what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the draft.

Mr. Sproat

Discussions on this directive are continuing in Brussels; our aim is to secure agreement on a basis compatible with our self-regulatory system for the control of advertising standards.
