answer text <p>Advertising in the UK is regulated by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), the industry’s independent regulator, which enforces the Advertising Codes through a system of self-regulation and co-regulation with Ofcom. The Codes apply to all media, including broadcast and online. They incorporate all relevant legislation and set standards for accuracy and honesty to which advertisers must adhere, including specific conditions on advertising to children, causing offence and social responsibility.</p><p> </p><p>The ASA is recognised by the government, the courts and trading standards as the ‘established means’ for the enforcement of misleading advertising, and the Codes include rules designed to ensure that advertisers do not mislead consumers. It has a range of sanctions it can take against non-compliant advertisers and, as a last resort, can refer some to Trading Standards.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

answer text <p>The government knows people across the country value television as a way to stay connected with the world and we that is why we have guaranteed the over 75 licence fee concession until June 2020. The BBC will take on responsibility for free licences for the over-75s from 2020 and it is right that it has consulted the public before making any decisions. We’ve been clear that we would want and expect it to continue with this important concession.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government has been clear that tech companies need to act more quickly to remove terrorist content online and ultimately prevent new content being made available to users in the first place. There can be no safe spaces for terrorists to promote and share their extreme views. We are working closely with industry, including through the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, to encourage them to increase the use of technology to automate the detection and removal of content where possible.</p><p> </p><p>The forthcoming Online Harms White Paper will set out a range of legislative and non-legislative measures detailing how we will tackle online harms and setting clear responsibilities for tech companies to keep people safe online.</p><p>Decisions on broadcasting regulation are a matter for Ofcom, whose Broadcasting Code sets strong standards for material broadcast on television and radio around harmful and offensive material, incitement of crime, disorder, and hatred or abuse. The press is subject to independent self-regulation, primarily through IPSO and Impress. These regulators issue their own codes of conduct which provide guidelines on a range of areas including discrimination, accuracy and the reporting of crime.</p><p> </p>
