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.”
Crime campaigner Caroline Flint MP has called on the Government to urgently review its strategy for tackling serious and organised crime, in a report released today.
The report, published today by Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee of which Flint is a senior member, placed the cost of serious organised crime at £37bn a year but criticised the Government’s current strategy as poorly prioritised and inefficient.
Commenting on the report, Flint, a former Home Office Minister, said: “At present only 4% of the total budget for tackling organised crime is spent on preventative initiatives.
“Organised crime groups operate in several towns and villages across Doncaster. They increase fear among residents and encourage drug-dealing, intimidation and burglaries of homes, farms and commercial premises. In outlying communities and rural areas, we cannot have the police take on these crime groups with one arm tied behind their backs.
Caroline Flint has welcomed news that the police presence in Edlington is to be boosted as the Doncaster Police benefit from new resources.
The news comes as plans are underway to undertake new security and refurbishment work to Edlington Police Station.
Ms Flint, who was a Home Office Minister when the first neighbourhood policing teams were set up, said:
“Residents in Edlington will welcome the news that police numbers are to be increased and that Edlington will gain new officers and a greater presence.
Dunsville residents are celebrating a victory, thanks to a new £180,000 traffic light scheme agreed between Doncaster MBC and Sheffield City Region.
Doncaster has now agreed to install new traffic lights at the junction of the A18 High Street and St Marys Road, Dunsville.
Rossington should benefit from £57.5million NHS investment in Doncaster’s primary care says Don Valley MP Caroline Flint.
“This is the first real investment in primary care in a decade,” says Caroline “I hope Rossington is one of the gainers from this investment. Rossington is a good example of a village that needs new GP premises. Rossington is a large outlying community that is still growing.”

Caroline Flint, MP for Don Valley, has expressed concern at the Government’s mismanagement of the sale of publicly-owned land, as a new report into this issue is released by the Public Accounts Committee.
The Committee’s report shows the Government to have fallen badly short of its target to sell enough land for 160,000 new homes by 2020, with the need for affordable homes including social homes for rent having been neglected.
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.
