§ 22. Mr. FELL
asked how many German and Austrian waiters have been released and have resumed their employment, and at how many hotels or restaurants in London or in the country are they employed; and if he will consider the advisability of preventing their employment, or making a condition of such employment that the hotels exhibit 1732 at their entrance a notice that German waiters are employed there?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
On the first point, I can only repeat the figures which I gave in reply to a question by the hon. Member for the Brentford Division on the 4th of February. On the second point, I could add nothing to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member last Wednesday.
§ Mr. McKENNA
The naval and military authorities, under the Defence of the Realm Act, can act in the case mentioned by the hon. Member in the manner suggested, but I have no power.
