MADAM - I noted with interest the Labour Party's Local Election Special Newsletter from Norton candidate Andrew Tromans.

It included a commitment by Dudley Labour party to "spend and procure locally" and yet the printing of the publication had been undertaken by a company outside of the borough.

It would have been nice to have had the opportunity to submit a quotation for the work so that they try and honour at least one of their commitments to help the local economy and jobs.
