Read about the legacy of Dorothy Jewson, first female MP for Norwich here:

Dorothy Jewson

‘I think it is very important to realise in this Debate that this is not only a rural question affecting the agricultural workers, but is also a question which concerns those Hon. Members who represent urban constituencies. For my part, representing Norwich. I can say that the problem of the agricultural worker is constantly with us.’


And Lady Eve Balfour, farmer and founder of the Soil Association here:

Lady Eve Balfour

‘If the nation’s health depends on the way its food is grown, then agriculture must be looked upon as one the health services, in fact the primary health service. ‘It is important to outgrow the attitude of confining the term health services to what are really sickness services.’
