MPs to debate junk food ad ban25th April 2008
The Food Products (Marketing to Children) Bill has faced blocks from opposition MPs who do not agree that banning the advertising of "junk food" to children will halt rising obesity levels.
The bill was spearheaded by Labour MP Nigel Griffiths in 2007. Liberal Democrat MP Don Foster said: "There is little evidence of a correlation between junk food advertising and obesity; we have got a new set of rules relatively recently introduced and there are more to come."
