AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Advertising body rejects APPG calls for total gambling ad ban The UK’s Advertising Association (AA) has rejected proposals from the Gambling Related Harm All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) to ban all forms of gambling advertising, saying that such a move is not necessary at present.The APPG yesterday (15 June) published its final report on igaming harms, and concluded that a range of strict new controls should be introduced, including a total prohibition on advertising.In the report, the APPG claimed that as gambling can cause harm to individuals, and as advertising is designed to encourage people to gamble, a blanket ban would be justified.However, the AA, a trade association that represents advertisers, agencies, media and research services in the UK, said an outright ban would not be necessary and could in fact have further implications on the market.“We ask all gambling operators and their agencies to continue to adhere to the strict standards set by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and the Gambling Commission,” AA chief executive Stephen Woodford said. “These rules clearly require gambling operators to be socially responsible and to protect the vulnerable, as well as under 18s.“As new evidence emerges, the ASA and Gambling Commission consider this and amend the rules if they believe the evidence supports change,” Woodford explained. “At this time, we believe a total ban is not necessary – such an action has wide implications, particularly for the support of sports across media channels, something enjoyed by millions of people right across the UK.”Last month, the ASA released new research that suggested children’s exposure to gambling advertising has declined and is falling back to 2008 levels, amid an overall drop in TV viewing among children.The ASA’s 2019 update on its monitoring of children’s exposure to advertising for age-restricted products revealed children saw, on average, 2.5 TV gambling ads per week. 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.

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Finding top FTSE 100 dividend stocks for your portfolio has become harder as dozens of companies suspend their payouts during the pandemic. Roughly half the index has now halted dividends, but don’t despair, there are plenty of top income shares out there.FTSE 100 dividend stocks like the two I’m looking at here are great building blocks your retirement portfolio. Simply reinvest your dividends for growth while still working, then use them to top up your pension income later. It’s a great way to get rich over the longer term, and possibly even retire early.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I feel every investor should have exposure to commodity stocks such as metals and mining giants Anglo American (LSE: AAL) and Rio Tinto (LSE: RIO).I’d buy these two FTSE 100 dividend stocksEver since the millennium, commodity stocks have been driven by demand from China, and that is still the case today.This morning, the Anglo American share price is up 2.26%, Rio Tinto up 2.33%. Yet neither company has made any major announcement. This is purely due to a spike in Asian markets, as analysts look forward to positive Chinese second-quarter and trade figures out this week. They reckon the world’s second-largest economy is bouncing back from the pandemic, and natural resources stocks will reap the benefit with a rise in demand for steel, copper and iron ore.This could be your opportunity to buy these FTSE 100 dividend stocks ahead of the next leg of the recovery. Both Anglo American and Rio Tinto fell sharply in the March crash, as you would expect. They have recovered surprisingly well, though. Their share prices are up 34% and 26% respectively over the last three months.Stock market crash bargainsAgain, this isn’t due to individual company developments, but wider sentiment. That’s what’s driving the share prices of these FTSE 100 dividend shares today.Wise investors turn a stock market crash to their advantage, because it gives them the opportunity to buy their favourite stocks at bargain prices. In a sell-off, good companies get dumped along with the bad. Right now, these both look like solid companies, temporarily available at bargain prices.Anglo American, for example, trades at just 8.84 times earnings, with Rio Tinto at 9.16 times. While traditional valuation metrics such as the P/E ratio are not wholly reliable, these still look tempting entry prices to me.Even better, these two FTSE 100 dividend shares offer juicy income streams. Anglo American currently yields 4.53%, Rio Tinto 6.37%. That looks particularly attractive, given the carnage elsewhere. Anglo American looks relatively solid, having taken the opportunity to shrink its debts in the good times. That is paying off in the pandemic. The Rio Tinto share price has underperformed the wider natural resources sector, and may be able to play catch up.Given the dearth of FTSE 100 dividend stocks, both look exciting buys for long-term investors.
