HC Deb 13 June 2002 vol 386 c1435W
Mr. Todd

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he takes to protect the NHS name and logo from use by companies for commercial gain. [57892]

Mr. Lammy

We have a clear strategy for branding the National Health Service and we adopt a strong position in protecting the brand against inappropriate use.

In every case where we are aware of misuse by third parties, we contact the organisation concerned and request that the logo is removed. Where necessary, we take the advice of our solicitors.

The NHS logo is a registered trademark.
