HC Deb 22 June 1950 vol 476 c151W
105. Sir H. Williams

asked the Minister of Health for what reason he has abandoned the scheme inaugurated in 1924 for Government-sponsored brass foundry fittings bearing the registered Swan mark.

Mr. Bevan

The Swan mark is registered by the British Waterworks' Association and was used by manufacturers under licence from the Association, who decided to terminate the arrangement, as far as the home market is concerned, from the end of last year. I had no responsibility for this decision.
