Miliband: Ban children's TV loan ads

Miliband: Ban children's TV loan ads | Politics | Scoop.it
Payday loan adverts should be banned during children's TV shows, in the same way those for junk food are, says Labour leader Ed Miliband.
Aabynn Cha's insight:

The effect of advertisement on childeren and how that could impact coummities and more importantly for families. Miliband will ask the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) to act on irresposible adverts targeting children. "They're slick, fast, efficient technological plays, the crack cocaine of lending".


"representatives from the payday lending firms Wonga, QuickQuid and Mr Lender were questioned MPs on the Commons Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee."


Just like tobacco and alcohol, I think that there should be a regualtion on loan advertisment especially ones that are during on at children television.
