During a Commons Statement by Trade Secretary, Liam Fox, Caroline told the Minister:

“The last time there was a trade war like this, some 200,000 jobs were lost in the United States. What efforts has he made to identify and analyse the impact on the US economy? It seems to me that this is the biggest argument we can use.”

Following the Secretary of State’s announcement that the East Coast Main Line is to be brought back under public control after Virgin Trains and Stagecoach could not meet the necessary payments, Caroline Flint has demanded that the firms who failed to meet their contract should be barred from bidding for the new franchise in future.

The MP asked Transport Secretary Chris Grayling whether there should be consequences for the companies involved after they clearly undercut competitors to win the East Coast Main Line franchise in 2015.

Caroline Flint joined Mayor Ros Jones and Civic Mayor George Derx and guests to celebrate a retrospective exhibition of paintings prints and drawings by Tickhill artist Janet Buckle, held at the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery.

Said Caroline “I am so pleased I was able to join the launch of this major exhibition, by a longstanding local artist.  I first came across Janet’s work when I saw her paintings of coalmining landscapes.

“Janet observed that coal mines and their slag heaps are not just grey and lifeless, but that they were constantly changing.  I love her everyday views.  Her work reveals her surroundings from the view from the back door to walking through lush woodland.”

Bankwood_Protest300517.JPGSince March 2016 I’ve been working on behalf of residents living near Bankwood Lane, Rossington, with Doncaster Council (DMBC) planning department, the Environment Agency, Rossington Parish Council and Labour ward councillors, to resolve the ongoing problems on and surrounding the Bankwood Lane estate in Rossington.

For too long, residents of Rossington have endured high numbers of lorries travelling through the village, unpleasant smells coming from both lorries and recycling plants and plagues of flies.

A campaign by residents in Braithwell to tackle speeding traffic through their village, has led to a victory, following the support of MP Caroline Flint.  The Council has agreed to cut the speed limit on Ashton Lane, from 60mph to 40mph, to slow traffic coming into Braithwell.

Said Caroline: "The Council's decision to cut the speed limit on Ashton Lane is very welcome. I am grateful to Braithwell resident Arnold Pawson who raised his concerns about traffic speed on Ashton Lane at one of my surgeries.  His concerns were widely shared, resulting in a residents’ petition.  Since then, I have been pressing Doncaster MBC to reduce the speed limit, supported by the Parish Council, councillors and the police inspector.  This is a welcome step to make Braithwell's road safer."
