A CAMPAIGNING MP has attacked TV watchdogs as "ditherers" and said new regulations on junk food commercials are "watered- down".
Mary Creagh, whose Wakefield constituency incl- udes Denby Dale and Shelley, attacked Ofcom after it revealed the new rules.
The watchdog announced it would be banning ads for food which is high in fats, salt or sugar and banned in breaks on:
* All pre-school children's programmes.
* All programmes on mainstream channels aimed at children.
* All cable and satellite children's channels.
* Programmes aimed at young people, such as music shows.
* General entertainment programmes appealing to a "higher than average" number of under 16s.
Ms Creagh, who campaigned for a complete pre- 9pm watershed ban on such ads said:
"These watered- down recommendations simply will not work."
