§ Mr. Noel-Baker
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the management of certain hotels, as, for instance, the Anglo-Swiss Hotel, Bournemouth, 1472W have issued advertisements announcing that they do not cater for members of the Semitic race; and whether he will take steps to prevent this discrimination among British subjects?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
If any hotel proprietor in this country is guilty of copying Nazi methods in this way, there will, I am sure, be general public reprobation of such action. I am advised that an innkeeper is not entitled to discriminate between one person and another if he has accommodation available, and that a traveller who is refused accommodation at an inn, except when no accommodation is available, has a right of action for damages against the innkeeper.
