Default One-Handed Staff Parry Questions

The 7† ST stat for a Quarterstaff (B273) means a Quarterstaff can be used one-handed with no readiness penalty if the wielder has a ST of 14 (B270).

Question #1: Would a Quarterstaff wielded in this way get the +2 Parry bonus? I.e. when you wield a Quarterstaff one-handed, are you still using the Staff skill to wield it, or does the Staff skill require a two-handed grip?

Question #2: Why does the Naginata (B273) not get a +2 Parry bonus when used with the Staff skill?
