Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what assessment he has made of the current regulatory regime governing advertising during children's television programmes. [38302]

Mr. Fisher

The Independent Television Commission maintains and enforces a code of advertising standards and practice for commercial broadcasters, which includes detailed guidance on advertising and children. This guidance is reviewed by the Commission from time to time taking into account representations and available research as appropriate. The most recent review was conducted in 1997.
