But he added: ‘There are legislative problems in putting money on TV. There need to be discussions between the financial services authorities and people in television to try to figure out a new code of conduct.
‘The code would need to satisfy regulators but still offer broadcasters something. It would have to give a TV channel the chance to make enough money to pay for its running costs.’
