asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the fact that the central object of British foreign policy is to establish and maintain international peace, he will consider, in this year of the Festival of Britain, taking steps to re-name the Foreign Office the Peace Office and to change the designation of Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to that of Secretary of State for Peace.
Bearing in mind that my right hon. Friend, in his capacity as Foreign Secretary has already stated that his Department is the Department of peace, does not he think that such a striking change of nomenclature at the present time might have a heartening effect on the peoples of the Western world, who are now so depressed at the many signs of approaching war?
Could not the right hon. Gentleman at least make this concession to the hon. Member asking the Question: in future, could not the doves of peace be represented by males of the domestic fowl?
