A couple of weeks ago, we reported that FreeTV had proposed amending the current TV Commercial Code of Practice. These amendments would allow alcohol ads to be shown from 7:30pm – a time when many kids are still up and watching TV.
For this reason we oppose the changes, but time’s running out to have your say – invites for public comment close this Friday at 5pm. If you oppose the new Code proposals like we do, find out how you can make a submission.
We’ve seen time and again how community engagement can stop Big Alcohol getting their way, and we want to make sure this is one more example.
