§ SIR SEYMOUR KING (Hull, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether, in view of the distinguished services of the Indian Staff Corps, and the fact that the Artillery, Engineers and Marines, as well as the 15 Indian Naval Squadron, are styled "Royal," the Government will consider the propriety of praying Her Majesty the Queen to graciously order that the designation of "Royal," or "Imperial," shall be prefixed to the title of the "Indian Staff Corps"?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord GEORGE HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
I am not aware that there is any general desire on the part of the officers of the Indian Staff Corps for a change of designation of their service. I should be reluctant to move in the matter until I have a recommendation on the subject from the Government of India.
