Lucy Powell comments on the possible sale of Tata Steel’s continental European Steel business

Lucy Powell MP, Labour’s Shadow Business and Consumers Minister, commenting on the possible sale of Tata Steel’s continental European Steel business, said: 

“The potential break-up of Tata Steel’s business on mainland Europe without the sale of the UK arm emphasises the importance of finding a long-term, sustainable future for British steel which protects jobs here. That will require a partnership approach from the UK Government, which often issues warm words but fails to stand up for workers. 
 
“Labour’s green recovery plan this week proposed a sector deal for steel which would provide the steel industry with a long-term, greener future while safeguarding jobs and the UK’s primary steelmaking capacity.”
