I READ with interest the edited extract in last week's edition of the Parliamentary speech regarding migrant workers in the Fens by our MP Malcolm Moss.

Earlier in the week there was a report in the Daily Mail on the same subject and how (and I quote) an incident had been reported to Mr Moss about people in his constituency unable to obtain factory work because they were unable to speak Polish.

Unfortunately to many in the Fens, he said the incident had been reported to him at one of his constituency surgeries early last year, but he did not remember the name of the woman and the factory involved. What a shame he had a lapse of memory over such an important issue.
