Kelvin Thompson - Parliamentary Secretary for Trade - responds on the Rana Plaza fire in Bangladesh

In May I posted five times on The Network regarding exploitative sweatshop labour including writing about the deathly Rana Plaza fire. Western corporations and consumers have been/are the beneficiaries of cheap and slave labour. If you click here, you can view the posts.

If you click on this link, you can see in this post the text of the letter which I wrote to the Parliamentary Secretary for Trade, The Hon Kelvin Thomson MP.  

To-day's post brought Kelvin Thomson's reply.  I publish it below.  What do Networkers think?  Is this sufficient ... sufficient to ensure the dignity of right rewards for labour in Bangladesh and, for that matter, other countries where, to date, labour - particularly the labour of women and children - has been exploited to the benefit of western corporations and consumers?  Please comment.
