To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, when the Online Advertising Programme will publish its public consultation, following its call for evidence in 2020.
21 April 2021
My department has been considering how online advertising is regulated through our Online Advertising Programme, and we will be consulting on this issue later this year following an initial call for evidence in 2019.
Our aim is to foster fair, accountable and ethical online advertising that works for citizens, businesses, and society as a whole. In particular, we want to ensure standards about the placement and content of advertising can be effectively applied and enforced online so that consumers are protected from harmful or misleading advertising.
