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.
