This sees the rate of exposure fall to 2008 and 2009 levels, when children saw 2.2 and 2.7 gambling ads on TV, respectively.In total, these ads made up less than 2% of all TV ads seen by children each week. This represented a significant decline from 2013’s peak, when children saw an average of 4.4 gambling ads per week.The AA is not the only organisation to have hit back at the APPG findings, with the Gambling Commission also blasting claims that it was “not for for purpose”, dismissing the parliamentary group’s assertion as “untrue”.Other recommendations made by the APPG included a ban on online in-play betting and a new review into the use of bonuses and incentives by gambling operators, to determine whether these contributed to harmful gambling, as well as an end to VIP schemes.

Yesterday I went to town to buy the × × drink only 30 yuan a box, but you should last week to sell me a box of 35 yuan, this is not deceptive!" The other side of the attitude of some aggressive, love red face, and the other side of the theory, I had no choice but to stop: go to the sister to pour a cup of tea!"
lover left, I smiled and said to the customer: "sister, you listen to my explanation. We did get the information before the manufacturers to organize promotional activities, according to the plan is the first county township. When you buy drinks last week, the town has not carried out promotional activities, I ordered the goods did not arrive, you naturally can not enjoy the preferential price. If you buy today, I am sure that the store is 30 yuan a box. This sister, after the promotion, I inform you in advance, how?" Customers understand the whole story, his face slowly eased down.
