This printing block of the Royal Arms, which were first used on the front cover of Hansard and all other parliamentary publications in 1956, was designed and engraved by Reynolds Stone, and was commissioned by Parliament and the Royal Mint Advisory Committee. The previous royal arms had been in use since 1924, but were felt to be “somewhat outmoded and … unsuitable for modern typographic layout” (Parliamentary Archives HC/CL/CH/2/2/280-4, Simpson to Sir E. Fellowes, 20.3.1956).
