UK: Cameron calls for limits on immodest advertising
June 07, 2011
Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the recommendations of a new report on the commercialization and sexualization of childhood.
“I particularly welcome those recommendations to make public space more family-friendly by reducing the amount of on-street advertising containing sexualized imagery in locations where children are likely to see it [and to] ensure children are protected when they watch television, are on the internet or use their mobile phones by making it easier for parents to block adult and age-restricted material across all media,” said Cameron in a letter to Reg Bailey, the report’s author.
