HC Deb 04 April 1949 vol 463 cc1690-1
46. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Prime Minister whether he will change the name of the War Office to the Army Office, and so indicate its real function more accurately.

The Prime Minister

This change would involve legislation, which might well be controversial. In view of the pressure of more important legislation, I think there is no immediate need for any change.

Mr. Henry Strauss

If the principle suggested in this Question were adopted, would it not be necessary to re-name the Ministry of Food?
