Doncaster MPs Caroline Flint and Rosie Winterton were among guests at the Hitachi Doncaster Carr Train Maintenance Depot, which will test and maintain the 65 strong fleet of Azuma trains currently being built in County Durham.
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.
Caroline Flint has joined members of the Rossington-based, Dig It n Grow gardening group to plant new trees as part of the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.
Said Caroline: “It was great to join the Dig It N Grow gardening group to plant two silver birch saplings in the grounds of the Rossington Memorial Hall, until the saplings are strong enough to be replanted in a local woodland. Ann Cullen and Alan Cresswell have organised a fantastic group who do gardening and litter picking in the community every week.
Caroline appeared on Any Questions on Radio 4 on Friday night 26 October, speaking from Middlesbrough Town Hall on Brexit, abusive language in politics and steel.
