HC Deb 14 February 2003 vol 400 c118W
Mr. Rosindell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what his policy is on police cars displaying the Union Flag. [96661]

Mr. Denham

This is an operational matter for individual Chief Officers of police, although we are not aware of any force that has included the Union Flag as part of standard vehicle livery. There are no restrictions under the general law on the display of the Union Flag on land in England and Wales other than those imposed by the provisions of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 and the Trade Marks Act 1994, which relate to the reproduction of flags in trade marks.
