HC Deb 06 June 1945 vol 411 c897W
Colonel Carver

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will recommend that the Pioneer Corps may be granted the prefix Royal, in view of the long and gallant service it has rendered in all theatres of war.

Sir J. Grigg

The claims of the Pioneer Corps cannot be considered apart from similar claims for other corps. They will all be carefully examined but I hope my hon. and gallant Friend will agree with me that there are more urgent tasks on hand for the time being.
