For too long the UK steel industry has been neglected by this Government – Gill Furniss

Gill Furniss, Shadow Steel Minister, commenting on the publication of the Government’s study into the ‘Future Capacities and Capabilities of the UK Steel Industry’, said:

“For too long the UK steel industry has been neglected by this Government. Their Industrial Strategy merely paid lip service to industry whilst failing to provide any tangible solutions or to respond to the Steel Sector Deal proposal. The opportunities outlined in today’s report can only be harnessed with full Government backing and support.

’’Labour will create a level playing field for the UK steel industry so it can compete globally and take full advantage of the opportunities on offer’’.
