Abstract: A container comprises a flexible body member (2) closed by a cap portion (26) having an outlet (28) therein, and a control assembly within the cap portion for controlling liquid flow from the body member (2) to the outlet (28), the control assembly comprising an integrally moulded seating (6) for location on the body member (2), including an outer annular sleeve (8) and an inner valve support chamber (12) and a control valve (16) of a one piece plastic moulding located on the seating (6) to define a closed volume therebelow and to seal the outlet, the closed volume being vented to atmosphere, the arrangement being such that, on pressurisation on the interior of the body member (2), the pressurised liquid flows between the sleeve (8) and the chamber (12) to distort the control valve (16) and enable flow through the outlet (28), and, on release of said pressure, the control valve (16) returns to a position sealing the outlet (28).
