HC Deb 01 November 1916 vol 86 c1739W

asked the Secretary of State for War if the Cap Martin Hotel in South France has been taken by the Government as a convalescent home for British officers, and if a Mr. Schubaker has been appointed manager; if so, will he state the nationality of this person; and whether any attempt was made to secure the services of a British or French manager?


The Cap Martin Hotel has been secured as a convalescent home for British officers. Orders were given on the 6th October that the services of the former manager, Mr. Schubaker, should be dispensed with, and a British or French manager appointed in his place.
