Read Caroline Flint's reply to an open letter from Frederika Roberts, spokesperson for Best for Doncaster, the campaign for a second EU referendum.
Dear Ms Roberts
I was disappointed to see you publish an open letter on Facebook on 24 October claiming that I haven’t replied to your emails. I have therefore published this reply.
Perhaps you may recall that I wrote to you in November 2016 about the triggering of Article 50. I also wrote to you in September 2017 about the commitments I made at the election. I wrote to you about EU citizen’s rights in December 2017. Finally, I wrote to you in January 2018 about Amendment 7 of the EU (Withdrawal) Bill - the meaningful vote.
