Pressing the Government to support British Steel

There are tens of thousands of jobs at risk, not just in British Steel but in a supply chain that reaches industrial communities across the country, like ours here in Barnsley.

In the House of Commons today, I asked why the Government will not use the power it already has to protect those jobs.

Why, even at this stage, won’t the new Defence Secretary commit to building the Navy’s new Support Ships here in Britain, using British Steel and providing decent jobs in the communities that desperately need a government that is on their side: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/may/21/british-steel-administration-jobs-government-loan
