The government must intervene on British Steel

Gill Furniss MP, Shadow Minister for Steel, commenting on reports that British Steel is facing administration, said:

“The UK steel industry is critical to our manufacturing base and is strategically important to UK industry. The government must intervene.

“Administration would be devastating for the thousands of workers and their families who rely on this key industry in a part of the country which has not had enough support and investment from government over decades.

“Labour will support our steel industry and the communities, jobs and wider industries which rely on this domestic production.”
