Department of Health threaten Vote Leave over use of NHS logo

Vote Leave have been threatened with legal action for using the NHS logo on leaflets about the NHS.

The leaflets argue that when we leave the EU, the money we save can be used on services like the NHS. The Department of Health doesn't think that a leaflet about the NHS should use the NHS logo but doesn't seem to explain why. It's not like the NHS is a profit-making organisation or one that needs to protect a reputation to ensure it doesn't lose customers. Using the NHS logo in a leaflet about the NHS is clearly fair use and the Department of Health's legal threats are just part of the British government's campaign to try and undermine the leave campaign.
