PAYDAY LOAN SHARKS ON CHILDREN'S TV

PAYDAY LOAN SHARKS ON CHILDREN'S TV

Postby RichardWSymonds » Sun Nov 10, 2013 1:30 pm

Ed Miliband claims Britain's kids are "being targeted by payday lenders" - and pledges to ban adverts for payday loans during children's TV programmes such as Peppa Pig.

The Labour leader has a piece in the Sun on Sunday:

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/ne ... cters.html

"Children's entertainment must not become an easy route for loan companies to exploit families — particularly those already struggling. We don't allow gambling firms to advertise during children's TV and we don't allow junk food to be advertised either... The next Labour government will ask the Advertising Standards Authority to prevent irresponsible advertising by payday lenders that targets or exploits children and young people... There is no justification for ever selling payday loans during children's TV. We will stop it."
