HC Deb 08 April 1919 vol 114 cc1871-2W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that clothes supplied by the Government to demobilised soldiers are made by the firm of S. Schneiders and Sons; and if he will state the nationality of the members of that firm?


The firm referred to in my hon. Friend's question are now engaged on a contract for discharged soldiers' clothing. With the exception of Mr. M. Schneiders, who was born in Amsterdam in 1843, came to England with his parents in 1844, and was naturalised in August, 1909, all the partners in the firm are British born.
