§ Mr. WATT
asked the Home Secretary what is the nationality and business of the partners of Schiff and Company, of Throgmorton Street, who at present employ E. A. Meyer, who was ordered out of West-cliff-on-Sea for pro-German conversation and action; and is his Department satisfied that it is safe to allow them freedom daily in the City?
§ Sir G. CAVE
I understand that this firm is carrying on the business of a stock and share broker, and that there are four partners, of whom two are naturalised British subjects of Austrian origin, naturalised in 1875 and 1878 respectively, while the other two are natural-born British subjects. I know of no reason, whatever for doubting the loyalty of any of the partners.
