Government prison reforms must put safety of prison staff first.

Caroline Flint: It is a pleasure to follow the Hon. Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh). The circulation of “Labour’s Future” on the Tory Benches is obviously having an impact on some of the policy areas outlined by the hon. Gentleman, such as the forced academisation of schools and the plight of the working poor. Today, I will focus on tax transparency and prison reform.

IMG_4810.jpgCaroline Flint has accused the Government of saying one thing and doing another on Sunday Trading.  The MP told a Commons Committee examining the Enterprise Bill: "On two occasions, senior figures in our political system — the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Prime Minister — have seemed to say one thing to get the support of the House and the electorate, and then down the road it seems they have changed their view. Perhaps that was already their plan."
