HC Deb 04 May 1882 vol 269 cc93-4

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If his attention has been called to the refusal of an innkeeper at Windsor, on a recent occasion to admit into the hotel a soldier belonging to the 2nd Regiment of Life Guards; and, if the innkeeper's conduct is justifiable in Law?


, in reply, said, that it would not be proper or legal on the part of an innkeeper to exclude any person from his hotel. The exercise of that exclusion against a man who had the honour to wear the uniform of the Queen, seemed to him most extremely improper. It was not, however, to be understood that he could be compelled to admit him into every room. So far from being regarded as a person to be looked down upon and excluded, he ought to be looked upon as a person to be especially honoured.
