§ Mr. John Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will extend to shop window displays the taste and decency controls that apply to advertising hoardings and advertisements on buses. 
§ Jacqui Smith
No. Extension of the British Code of Advertising Practice would be for the Advertising Standards Authority, an independent body, to consider. However, it is already a criminal offence, under the Indecent Displays Control Act 1981, publicly to display indecent matter, which includes displays in shop windows.
