We’ve aligned to points Damian Collins made in a call for a code for political advertising in Campaign magazine on the 13thAugust relevant recent recommendations concerning political advertising. We’ve included recommendations from the Independent Commission on Referendums, the Electoral Commission, and the interim report from the DCMS Committee’s Inquiry on Disinformation and ‘Fake News’.
The aim of this exercise has been to help contribute more definitive and consistent recommendations for political advertising reform generally. Also to contribute towards the Government’s response to the DCMS’s interim report recommendations due shortly and the DCMS Committee’s final recommendations, which are to be published later in the year.
