Rebecca Long Bailey comments on job losses at Tata Steel

Commenting on job losses at Tata Steel, Rebecca Long Bailey, Labour’s shadow business secretary, said:

“This is terrible news for Tata Steel workers, made all the worse coming just before Christmas.

“This Conservative government has failed to support our manufacturing industry and people are paying for that failure with their livelihoods. It speaks volumes that the business secretary Andrea Leadsom cancelled a meeting with the steel industry only last month. They just don’t care.

“Labour will bring the real change our country needs through investment and confidence in our domestic industry.”
