Petition Action

Ban Lending and Loan Related Adverts from Kids Channels such as Nick JNR

Additional Information

Children shouldn't be exposed to adverts selling loans which feature probably just as much as the actual programs.

Why can't loan companies have their own channel and lets file them accordingly so that if/when we do need a loan we know where to go.

Let's avoid the next generation losing further sight of the value of earning their own way without becoming dependent on borrowing.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

Advertising in the UK is controlled through a system of co-regulation and self-regulation, which is administered by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). This regulatory system is independent of Government and is ultimately responsible for setting the standards in advertising.

The ASA regulates advertising in all media and they ensure that advertisements, wherever they appear, comply, in full, with the requirements of the UK advertising codes – in particular that they are legal, decent, honest and truthful.

You may wish to complain to the ASA. You can write to them at Advertising Standards Authority, Mid City Place, 71 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6QT, telephone on 020 7492 2222 / 020 7242 8159 or visit their website at www.asa.org.uk
