§ Q20. Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the changed status of the British Empire, he will now recommend that the Order of Chivalry known as the Order of the British Empire should be redesignated the Order of the British Commonwealth.
§ The Prime Minister
No. This is a matter which has been considered from time to time, but there is no great demand for a change, and on balance I feel that the name is best left alone.
