Government lifts ban on Ann Summers job ads

The
Government has decided not to challenge a High Court decision that banned sex
toy and lingerie chain Ann Summers from advertising in Jobcentres.

The
Government had 28 days to take the matter to the Court of Appeal, but has told
Ann Summers it will accept adverts in all Jobcentres from 21 July.

Last
month, the High Court overturned an earlier decision to ban the job adverts.

The
Department for Work & Pensions had argued that it shouldn’t advertise jobs
connected with ‘the sex or personal services industry’.
