Glasgow Commonwealth Games Act 2008


Section 10: Ban on advertising in the vicinity of Games locations

24.This section makes it an offence to advertise in the vicinity of a Games location at particular times (the “advertising offence”). The Scottish Ministers are given a power to make further provision about advertising around Games locations which can be used to set out further exceptions to the offence. The offence does not apply to advertising by the Organising Committee or the Commonwealth Games Federation although the advertising regulations may require either or both to comply with prescribed conditions.

25.As with the ban on street trading within the vicinity of Games locations (Section 2), much of the detail of the restrictions has been left to secondary legislation in order to enable a full assessment of what is required closer to 2014. This could involve changes in the requirements of the Commonwealth Games Federation or proposed venues which may affect the detail of the regulations.
