Premier lose appeal
Last updated on January 16th, 2014 at 05:53 pm
The Court of Appeal has upheld a decision to ban an advert inviting Christians to share their experiences of marginalisation in the workplace.
Two out of three judges have agreed with the Radio Advertising Clearance Centre which had banned the advert from being broadcast on Premier Christian Radio on the grounds that it had a political objective.
Premier’s Chief Executive Peter Kerridge, speaking on Premier Radio, told Marcus Jones that he believes the decision is “bad for democracy and freedom of speech”.
“I don’t think Parliament intended to ban surveys on the radio,” he said, and claims there was nothing political about the advert. Premier may now consider taking the case to the Supreme Court.
