    Mr. Asquith replied in the House of Commons to a question by Mr Swift MacNeil asking whether the British Titles and orders of the Duke of Albany and Prince Albert Schleswig-Holstein and the Duke of Cumberland, who were in arm against this country, would be taken over.

    In answer, Mr. Asquith said the matter had been considered by the cabinet.   The Government were in full sympathy with the feeling and opinion of the House, and His Majesty would be asked to take the necessary steps in regard to the titles and orders.   The Lord Chancellor was considering the technical questions of law.
