Stories involving Caroline Flint

Flint hails collective energy switching programme

Caroline Flint has hailed the the launch of the first UK-wide collective energy switching campaign as "simple but potentially trail-blazing." The initiative - run by Which? and 38 Degrees - will attempt to bring people together to negotiate cheaper energy bills with the big energy companies. The Shadow Energy and Climate Change Secretary said it would "set an exciting precedent which organisations such as local authorities and housing associations could take up to negotiate better energy deals on behalf of their residents."


Shadow cabinet minister Caroline Flint has said the Labour party "had to act" after Phil Woolas' court verdict which banned the former minister from politics for three years. She told Question Time that Mr Woolas was a friend but maintained the party's decision to suspend him was correct.


Nick Clegg yesterday said the government would be "prepared to alter and change" the coalition's controversial proposal to allow defendants in rape cases anonymity after the plan faced widespread condemnation.


Solar tariff cut 'fatal blow' to industry

Government cuts to the solar power feed-in tariff have been described as a "fatal blow" to the industry by two Parliamentary committees. A joint report from the Environmental Audit Committee and the Energy and Climate Change Committee agrees with the need to reduce the subsidy, but argues ministers have done so "clumsily", risking thousands of jobs in the process. Shadow Energy Secretary Caroline Flint has described the report as a "damning indictment" of the Government, whose "chaotic mismanagement" had put the solar industry in jeopardy.


Former housing minister Caroline Flint has blamed Gordon Brown for the lack of women in the race for the Labour leadership. She said that because of the lack of women in Brown's cabinet, there were few senior female politicians seen as "credible" candidates.


Labour launched a sprited attack of the Government's plans to cut local government funding by 27% over the next four years. Caroline Flint accused Communities Secretary Eric Pickles of being "more interested in trashing local councils" than considering how cuts might impact the poorest.
