Labour MP Clive Lewis says he 'plugged' Norwich while speaking at the US Congress in Washington.
The Norwich South MP said he spoke in Congress on Wednesday about the experiences of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people.
But in a Twitter post he said that Norwich had also been given a mention.
He said: 'Pleased to have just spoken in the US congress at the Democrat Black Caucus.
'I explained the experience of BAME people in both the US and UK was, structural race issues aside, also part of a wider class struggle.

Mr Lewis added: 'Not sure if the 'fine city of Norwich' has been plugged hard in the US Congress before? It has now.'
