HC Deb 23 March 1893 vol 10 c900

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether Mr. J. Robinson, recently appointed Local Labour Correspondent for the Norfolk and Suffolk District, has any personal or local knowledge of the important labour questions in the City of Norwich; whether any, and, if so, what, labour organisations in the City of Norwich are associated with the Eastern Counties Labour Federation, of which, it is stated, Mr. Robinson is General Secretary; and whether there has been any communication from labour organisations, or others in Norwich or Norfolk, on the subject of Mr. Robinson's appointment?


It is impossible to employ Local Correspondents in every city and town in the United Kingdom, and it is not intended that these shall be the sole channels of information for the Labour Department. We shall endeavour to arrange for communications from Trade Organisations in Norwich and elsewhere.
