Asda ads in the News of the World

A number of people have contacted us through social media asking us about our advertising policy in the News of the World following the phone hacking allegations that emerged this week.

As we’ve explained in individual replies, we understand people’s concerns and reiterate that we have no plans to advertise in the News of the World.

In fact, contrary to some news reports we’re not a big spender on advertising in the News of the World – or indeed any Sunday paper. In this calendar year we have only spent around £34,000 on advertisements in the News of the World newspaper.
