Channel 4 grilled over Bigger Fatter Gypsier campaign

Evidence compiled by ACERT was used by MPs on the House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, meeting on the 16th October, to challenge senior Channel 4 managers about the impact of the Bigger, Fatter, Gypsier billboard campaign on children. The evidence was gathered from teachers subscribing to the trav-ed mailing list.

The following day, David Enright, who spearheaded the campaign which resulted in the Advertising Standards Authority finding against two of the four adverts, was named “Solicitor of the Year” by the Law Society.
