Abstract: Let B be the group of $ {{\mathbf{F}}_q}$-rational points of the Borel subgroup of a connected reductive group defined over the finite field $ {{\mathbf{F}}_q}$. It is shown that under appropriate conditions, all irreducible characters of B which have degree prime to q have Schur index one.
