Primark has been voted Britain’s least ethical clothing retail, according to a survey by The Times newspaper.
The survey, carried out by Populus, found that of all UK clothing retailers Primark was viewed by consumers as the worst offender when it came to addressing social and environmental issues.
Marks & Spencer topped the table as the retailer best addressing social and environmental issues, followed by George at Asda and Debenhams.
The survey showed that the overall rating of every high street retailer has either gone up or stayed the same over the past year, except for Primark’s rating, which fell.
Earlier this year, an exclusive Drapers poll found that Primark faced losing up to 42% of its customers following the programme.
