§ Mr. REMER
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the Midland Railway hotels employ almost entirely foreign waiters; that other railway hotels employ exclusively ex-service men; and whether, under these circumstances, he will bring pressure to bear on this railway company on the propriety of the employment of ex-soldiers?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
The engagement of waiters at railway companies' hotels is not a matter over which I have any arbitrary authority, or which comes before me ordinarily. I have, therefore, no knowledge of the facts of the case to which the hon Gentleman refers, but I1744W am making inquiries, and will let him know the result.
