Safe sex campaign 'a waste of money'1st June 2009
A £250,000 government mobile phone campaign aimed at encouraging teenagers to use condoms has been deemed a waste of money.
Susie Squire from the Taxpayers' Alliance said: "Too often the government engages with gimmicky marketing and gimmicky advertising because they think they are going to reach a new audience. I think when it comes to spending taxpayers' money, particularly on healthcare issues, they should be going for the most effective approach, not the most fashionable."
