AA response to Culture Secretary Jeremy Wright’s statement on online regulation

/ February 12th 2019
Online regulation

An Advertising Association spokesperson commented:

“We note the statement today by the Culture Secretary, Jeremy Wright, that DCMS will carry out a review of how online advertising is regulated.  Whatever the outcome of this, the Advertising Association urges the Government to recognise the continuing relevance and importance of the ASA’s role as the one-stop shop for all advertising content. This is fundamentally important to the industry, but also to consumers, since it provides clarity on where to go if you have a problem with an ad, regardless of the medium in which it is carried.”
