Caroline Flint is one of nineteen Labour MPs to co-sign letters to the President of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker and the President of the European Council Donald Tusk urging the EU Commission and the EU27 to “work night and day, if required, to agree a deal.”
Said Caroline “I have written to Jean Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk urging the EU Commission, the EU27 member states and the UK Government to work night and day to agree a deal.
“I want the referendum result delivered – but an orderly Brexit is better than a No Deal Brexit.
“Don Valley’s voters, like the British people, are tired of deadlock and want Brexit resolved.
"I will be working right up to 31 October to keep my election pledge to the people of Don Valley to get the best Brexit deal and to leave the EU.”
Caroline Flint met Unite the Union Reps in Parliament this week, to support their Brexit No Deal No Way meeting.
At a packed meeting in Parliament, several MPs met lay members of the union from across a range of manufacturing sectors, including those from major car companies Jaguar and Toyota.
