HOTLINE: Debra Shipley MP tables a Commons question

The Labour MP Debra Shipley has tabled a Commons question calling

for a ban on commercials during children's TV programmes. She said:

"Young children are being brainwashed by these commercials. They are

inappropriate and should be banned, especially during programmes for the

under-fives, but preferably during all children's programmes.".
